This Day in Georgia History

March 22, 1935

Prohibition Ended

Georgia’s statewide prohibition on alcoholic beverages ended when Gov. Eugene Talmadge signed the Alcoholic Beverage Control Act, which repealed earlier prohibition statues and provided for the regulation and licensing of liquor and other distilled spirits [beer and malt beverages was covered by a separate act approved on Mar. 23, 1935].
