It's been 114 years since the last legal drink was purchased in the Lakeside neighborhood of Duluth, Minn. Now the Duluth City Council has voted to allow residents to have a say in whether to let Prohibition stand in the community.
The city council voted 7-2 earlier this week to allow a referendum to be placed on the November ballot. Residents will vote on whether they would like to have alcohol available for sale in their community. A state law passed in 1894 bans the sale of alcohol in Lakewood.
The vote by citizens is non-binding. The city would still have to ask the Minnesota Legislature to repeal the law.
