Well just another example of how the Commonwealth is stuck in the stone ages. Luckly most of its citizens live within an hour of another state. And our local police could care less of a $25 fine. Move PA into the 2000's and sell the adult beverages in a free market owned store!

If it ain't broke don't fix it.
This has worked for many years and all that is needed is to increase the fines when caught bringing alcohol accross state lines.
In some states there seems to be a liquor store in almost every block. I don't believe that is necessary.

If you don't feel that you can make that extra stop, then maybe you didn't need it in the first place.

As "Nasium" said in the one woman police force forum I too have a different address posted on my comments. Does anyone know why this happens?

It's all about politics.
In order for someone to be employed in an out-let, as a clerk, they must travel to Harrisburg, take a test and have a political sponsor.Has anyone taken the time to estimate the cost of the pensions or exactly where the excess profits go?
As it is State operated,it also doesn't take personal checks.

What ever happened to the concept of the free enterprise system?
