A discussion of the Webb-Kenyon Act on Volokh Conspiracy


There is a rather detailed discussion of the substance and history of the Webb-Kenyon Act on Volokh Conspiracy here and here. The Act was passed in 1913 to permit the dry states to prohibit importation of alcohol for personal use. Prior to the Act, the states could impose prohibition on the sale of alcohol produced either within or outside the state, but could not prohibit its import for personal consumption.
