I was referring to both, but yes it is clear alcohol was a protected right. We know this because they had to pass an amendment to ban it.
I'm not sure that logic holds, but my point was "reserved to the states or the people" refers to powers not rights. States don't have rights.

Follow the money

A State can have an 18 year old drinking age, you just have to give up a whole lot of Federal highway fund money to do it

The National Minimum Drinking Age Act of 1984 required all states to raise their minimum purchase and public possession of alcohol age to 21. States that did not comply faced a reduction in highway funds under the Federal Highway Aid Act.

Much like NH does not have a seat belt law for those 18 or over, but it costs them Federal dollars to do so, at least 5 Million a year
This July decision in The 4th circuit, Is just more momentum for the SCOTUS when it hears the New York Law on pistol permit approvals.(November 2021 session). I live in RI it also has an arbitrary way of issueing Concealed Carry Permits(RI Attorney General "MAY" issue if they deem it necessary.) Let us hope that this arbitrary and corrupt way of delving out constitutional rights will come to an END!!! RI politically connected are issued CCW permits, but the regular "JOE BLOW" is denied. Typical Socialist Democrats. Do as I say, not as I do.
