McKenzie isn't getting bars. Bars would requre a vote about selling liquor by the drink. The vote on Tuesday was about selling bottled liquor in stores.

And I bet selling liquor will cause the same amount of problems as selling beer does: none at all.

Really? Like its any different from beer? The ignorance of these people completely takes my breath away. You bash and bash at anything and everything and in reality your the one drinking the liquor when no one is looking. There is other liquor besides the hard kind such as wine. So in this case my extremist friends, you cannot have that either.

Speaking of Colorado. We need to legalize cannabis too. Can you imagine the revenue? If alcohol and more so tobacco are legal then so should something less harmful than both.

Before all of the "Social Crusades" like "Prohibition" all began as "Moral"argument. The Temperance Movement believed that alcohol was going to destroy the human race. It's funny that Paraguart (CONTAINING OPIUM) remained a legal prescription until about 1992.

It's also interesting that LSD would be a legal treatment for Dementia until the early 1970's

As for Canabis causing a coma; That's very dificult to believe unless that young person already had a undiagnosed condition.

We don't live in a religeous state. We live under a constitution that grants sweeping liberties to idividuals AND States. Regulating behaviour to such extreames puts us at odds with that document.

Not all these prohibitions and restrictions on Sunday sale are based on Church doctrine. So much for separation of church and state

.

I doubt if you know the difference, but driving home with an unopened bottle in the car is not the same as emptying the bottle in ones mouth as they are riding along.

Too many l's in your handle

In theory we aren't supposed to live in a religious state. Trouble is, we actually do. Unfortunately, the local legislatures use Church Doctorine as a guiding principle when implementing legislation. They don't care for the separation of church and state. I have to say though, as backwards as McKenzie's alcohol laws were, they certainly weren't as bad as some of the laws in Arkansas. I went to visit there just a few weeks ago. Where I stayed required driving two counties over just to get beer. Not even the WalMart sold beer.

Why high? Because the comment sounded like it was made by one who is quite high. That is,, not in touch with reality.
