Thursday marks the 80th anniversary of the ratification of the 21st amendment to the Constitution, otherwise known as the end of prohibition. Though boozing has been legal nationwide for several generations, some states have retained their zeal for restricting American’s right to party. Others are a lot more cool about it. In the spirit of this joyous anniversary, TIME presents the 3 best and worst states for drinking.
1. Missouri: There’s no place better in the country to get your drink on than the Show-Me State. Missouri has no restrictions against open containers, and the only places it’s illegal to be drunk in public are occupied schools, churches or courthouses. While localities can pass laws banning public intoxication, it’s prohibited for cities and towns to require arrest for such offenses.
