Default Re: Liquor online

As stated by me and others, this is all due to the mish-mash of state, and even local, laws. Some states have privately-owned liquor stores, some only state-controlled ABC ones. This is due both to Puritanical moralistic and economic or tax authority reasons. There are still some dry counties scattered around the nation, where it is illegal to bring a 6-pack locked in your trunk across the county line. These blue laws give suppliers and shippers pause, as is understandable.

Perhaps I misspoke slightly by saying shipment of liquor is, across the board, illegal. Perhaps it is better to state that it is widely prohibited, with serious legal consequences attached to violations. However, the end result is essentially the same.
