Abstract:     
According to Richard Hofstadter, the United States was born in the country and has moved to the city. As a result, the quest to divine meaning from the United States Constitution might more profitably speak of farmers' intent rather than framers' intent. This article proposes a seminar on The Potable Constitution, a tour of American constitutional law using naught but cases involving liquor, beer, wine, and milk.
