There is no One Article today.  I’ve decided to take the day off from it, but before I start enjoying lots of food I am starting research on my state alcohol law project. The one thing I can say after just two hours of research is that all state alcohol laws and regulations are overly complicated. There are usually multiple state agencies in charge of rules and regulations and multiple state agencies in charge of enforcement.  That doesn’t include the additional layers of rules, regulations, and enforcement at the county and city levels.  This is before I’ve even gotten into how the laws regulate the actual the 3-tiered system.  I’m only looking at the who creates and enforces each state’s rule and regulations. This is giving me a headache. I think I need first lunch and a beer.
