pute kisses like a man: over new year's eve i was a little startled by the thought that this country once thought it was a good idea to prohibit alcohol.
ChipNASA: More than a century after Carrie Nation started the Temperance Movement, Kansas may allow liquor to be sold in grocery stores. Your move, Pennsylvania marijuana./ftfu
simkatu: I like the idea of having exclusive liquor stores. It helps maintain small locally owned businesses in Kansas and allows for some pretty neat stores that have huge selections of wine, or huge selections of all kinds of beer, or big selections of everything. Once Costco and Sam's Club and Kroger's and Quiktrip are in the game, then we will see a reduction of choices and large numbers of successful businesses will be shuttered so that the billionaires can monopolize yet another market.I'd also like to be able for young children to go to the grocery store and convenience stores without seeing a bunch of drunk toothless insane hobos scrounging around the stores hustling for more booze. Its nice to have places that sell adults only items to be far away from my grocery store. I like adult only activities, but I am considerate of others around me that would prefer not to be so close to it.
super_grass: Woo! Easy access to alcohol!This totally won't make the highways a bloodbath after every idiot who thinks being drunk is totally cool decides to hop in a driver's seat, right? The 21st amendment and this country's ass-backwards drinking culture is a farking disgrace, more people die from drunk drivers than plane crashes, sharks, and terrorism combined.In b4 drunkards say that alcohol control is impossible, Saudi Arabia and a boatload of middle eastern countries do it and they have virtually no alcohol abuse. If they can do it, so can we.
the_end_is_rear: theurge14: If the red states truly want smaller government, they can start to demonstrate that by removing intrusive morality laws such as this one.But these kind of laws are ok when they are shoving their version of morality and religion down ones throat.
Magorn: Liquor laws just confuse the hell out me. I grew up in an MD country where All Alcohol had to be purchased at a liquor store, but they were all privately owned. One county up it was beer and wine in the supermarkets, but all hard booze came from county-run and owned ABC stores. Supposedly red State VA is like that all over the state. My favorite was Chicago where Beer and liquor are equally available at your local supermarkets...
buntz: A couple of our Giant Eagles tired selling wine but it didn't last longThey DO sell beer now though...

taurusowner: I'm still pissed that there are any idiotic laws like that still in place anywhere. It's quite frustrating trying to buy alcohol past 2am or on a Sunday morning in MI. Particularly when one works nights and 2am is like mid afternoon on my night off. Can we please stop trying to regulate non-harmful actions and morals with the fist of government?
buzzcut73: I learned the hard way about Kansas' weak beer in convenience stores rules when I was traveling through that Godforsaken wasteland and had to stop overnight because the weather got shiatty. Picked up a six pack, got checked into a hotel in Parsons, and NOOO...it was just like Utah all over again./Fark Kansas
