Could Paris be going wet soon?

Dec 11, 2008 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: Paris Texas

There's been such little reaction to a possible liquor election in Paris that it makes me think that if legalizing beer and wine in Paris is on the ballot in May, it will pass.

That's county. We are talking about the city. Two separate entities. Just because the county hits a jackpot doesn't mean they will share it with all incorporated (or non-incorporated)cities inside the county.

Wow, what happened to all of the problems that the people said we would have when Paris goes wet.

Where are all of those problems folks?

Everyone has forgotten. It seems that Paris CAN change for the better. Look at the new businesses that have been created. Look at the new taxes generated. Where is all of the littering and drunks on the street?

I hope this shows Paris that it can change in many more ways and for the better!

Just wanted to jog your memories.

I didn't realize Paris could only sell beer, and you still had to go to Toco for liquor. One of the first times I went to Paris, there was a traffic jam on Toco Liquor on Hwy 82 at 5:00 on a Friday. I thought WTF?

For upteen years Toco and Sun Valley raped the people that purchased their alcohol there. Isn't it odd how they BOTH immediatelyt dropped their prices even before anyone in Paris was able to sell?

Competition is the best way to control prices. We need to sell so the business will stay in Paris and not drive to Toco or Sun Valley.

Grow Marijuana and sell it to California your city will make hundereds of millions. Just legalize growing and shipping to were it is legal to possess. The VA has legalize use for veterans in states that are already legal.

A new state report indicates that Californians smoke 16 million ounces of pot a year–that’s just less than one half-ounce a person for every resident in the state.

Heres how you tax it. You stop waisting tax money on useless police enforcement. Maybe its not money coming in but its a whole lot of money not going out, and the money you save will produce more than you ever could taxing something that grows in your back yard.
