KIDD v. PEARSON 128 U.S. 1 (1888)

A unanimous Court distinguished manufacturing and all forms of production from interstate commerce, holding that a state act prohibiting the manufacture of intoxicants did not conflict with the national power to regulate interstate commerce and that the manufacture of a product for export to other states did not make it an article of interstate commerce.
