9. I don't think if I was a drinker I'd feel any differently

All my family, neighbors and friends drink. One of my brother's is interested in wines and gets a lot of bottles per store visit so he always has the right wine on hand. Since he knows it's going to be a shopping trip he also likes to spend time browsing for something new. I don't know a soul other than heavy drinkers or problem drinkers that I ever noticed having an issue with not being able to run out in the middle on the night for more booze they really shouldn't be drinking more of anyway.

You can still buy a maximum of two six-packs at most bars, but it's expensive, and you won't get it if they think you're intoxicated. They're much harder on people stopping in to buy six packs than drinkers at the bar since they KNOW they're going to be driving and leaving immediately. At least when you have drunk folks drinking in the bar you can call them a cab, cut them off and make sure they hang out till they sober up, feed them, and call the police if they insist on leaving right away and driving. And these days people have gotten a whole lot better about having a designated driver when out drinking in the bars.

I agree, I think it just makes binge drinking a lot easier and too many drunks on the road.

I don't remember if the workers in the state stores are unionized or not. Even if not they still get decent pay, vacation and sick time and good benefits. A privately owned place would pay them minimum wage with no benny's and work them like dogs.

I do remember that for awhile you had to get a special license to buy booze. I can't remember what it was called, but no other ID was good. That law was stupid, and I'm glad they got rid of that one. It didn't last long at all, and I think by the time was was old enough to drink they'd done away with it. Went over like a lead balloon.
