sales, except for scientific, sacramental, medicinal, or mechanical

purposes, of intoxicating liquor containing more than 4 per centum

of alcohol by volume or 3.2 per centum of alcohol by weight are

HISTORICAL AND REVISION NOTES

1948 ACT

Based on sections 222, 223 of title 27, U.S.C., 1940 ed.,

Intoxicating Liquors (June 25, 1936, ch. 815, Sec. 2, 3, 49 Stat.

1928).

Section consolidates subsection (a) of section 222 with section

223, of title 27, U.S.C., 1940 ed.

Words ''or 3.2 per centum of alcohol by weight'' were inserted

after ''volume.'' Such words conform with Flippin v. U.S. (1941,

121 F. 2d 742, 744, certiorari denied, 62 S. Ct. 184, 314 U.S. 677,

86 L. Ed. 542); Robason v. U.S. (1941, 122 F. 2d 991); Dolloff v.

U.S. (1941, 121 F. 2d 157, certiorari denied, 62 S. Ct. 108, 314

U.S. 626, 86 L. Ed. 503, rehearing denied, 62 S. Ct. 178, 314 U.S.

710, 86 L. Ed. 566); and Tucker v. U.S. (1941, 123 F. 2d 280).

Those cases overruled Arnold v. U.S. (1940, 115 F. 2d 523) and

Gregg v. U.S. (1940, 116 F. 2d 609) and established that

preservation of the congressional intent which requires addition of

the inserted language.

Subsection (b) of section 223 of title 27, U.S.C., 1940 ed., has

been reworded to apply the definition of intoxicating liquor

contained in the laws of the respective States to this section

only, in accordance with administrative interpretation. Said

section 223 was derived from section 3 of the Liquor Enforcement

Act of 1936 (Act June 25, 1936, ch. 815, 49 Stat. 1928), which was

enacted for the protection of dry States. As originally enacted,

its provisions relating to such definition also embraced the

interstate commerce liquor laws from which sections 1263-1265 of

this title were derived. In the enforcement of the latter,

however, their own definitions have been applied and not the

definitions of the States into which or through which the liquor

was shipped.

Words ''Territory, District, or Possession'' were inserted after

''State'', to conform with the definition of ''State'' given in

said section 222 of title 27, U.S.C., 1940 ed. Such section,

including subsection (b) thereof, is also incorporated in section

3615 of this title.

Words ''be guilty of a misdemeanor and shall'' were omitted in

view of definitive section 1 of this title.

Minor changes were made throughout in arrangement and

phraseology.

1949 ACT

This section (section 32) corrects a typographical error in

section 1262 of title 18, U.S.C.

AMENDMENTS

''fined not more than $1,000'' in second par.

section catchline.

-STATUTE-

Whoever knowingly ships into any place within the United States

any package containing any spirituous, vinous, malted, or other

fermented liquor, or any compound containing any spirituous,

vinous, malted, or other fermented liquor fit for use for beverage

purposes, unless such shipment is accompanied by copy of a bill of

lading, or other document showing the name of the consignee, the

nature of its contents, and the quantity contained therein, shall

be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than one year, or

both.

HISTORICAL AND REVISION NOTES

Based on title 18, U.S.C., 1940 ed., Sec. 390 (Mar. 4, 1909, ch.

321, Sec. 240, 35 Stat. 1137; June 25, 1936, ch. 815, Sec. 8, 49

Stat. 1930.)

Reference to persons causing or procuring was omitted as

unnecessary in view of definition of ''principal'' in section 2 of

this title.

References to Territory, District, etc., were revised and same

changes made as in section 1264 of this title.

The provision that ''such liquor shall be forfeited to the United

States'' was omitted as covered by section 3615 of this title,

which was derived from section 224 of title 27, U.S.C., 1940 ed.,

Intoxicating Liquors.

The provision that such liquor ''may be seized and condemned by

like proceedings as those provided by law for the seizure and

forfeiture of property imported into the United States contrary to

law'' was likewise omitted as covered by section 3615 of this

title, which provides for seizure and forfeiture under the internal

revenue laws rather than under provisions of law ''for the seizure

and forfeiture of property imported into the United States contrary

to law'' or, in other words, rather than under the customs laws.

Section 224 of title 27, U.S.C., 1940 ed., Intoxicating Liquors, on

which said section 3615 of this title is based, was derived from

the Liquor Enforcement Act of 1936 (Act June 25, 1936, ch. 815, 49

Stat. 1928). Said section 224 included, in its coverage, section

390 of title 18, U.S.C., 1940 ed., on which this revised section is

based, even though the Liquor Enforcement Act of 1936, in another

section thereof, in amending said section 390, retained the

provision that seizures and forfeitures thereunder should be under

the customs laws. By eliminating this conflicting provision, a

uniform procedure for seizures and forfeitures, under the internal

revenue laws, is established under said section 3615 of this title.

AMENDMENTS

1994 - Pub. L. 103-322 substituted ''fined under this title'' for

''fined not more than $1,000''.

1968 - Pub. L. 90-518 struck out ''of or package'' after ''any

package'' and substituted ''shipment is accompanied by copy of a

bill of lading, or other document showing'' for ''package is so

labeled on the outside cover as to plainly show''.

EFFECTIVE DATE OF 1968 AMENDMENT

Section 3 of Pub. L. 90-518 provided that: ''This Act (amending

this section) shall become effective ninety days after the date of

its enactment (Sept. 26, 1968).''

CONGRESSIONAL DISCLAIMER OF INTENT TO PREEMPT STATE REGULATION OF

SHIPMENTS OF INTOXICATING LIQUOR

Section 2 of Pub. L. 90-518 provided that: ''Nothing contained in

this Act (amending this section) shall be construed as indicating

an intent on the part of Congress to deprive any State of the power

to enact additional prohibitions with respect to the shipment of

intoxicating liquors.''
