This is a great move. Next they need to outlaw saggy pants, over sized North Face jackets, Newports and McDonalds. Soon the city will begin to clean itself up.

they've had ban on single can sales of beer in the adams morgan/mt pleasant area for a couple of years now...guess what...they still get drunk! what's the point? you can walk across 16th street and purchase SINGLE CANS; but on the other side of 16th street, you CAN'T--now that's been the joke of the neighborhood ever since they passed that No Singles sale law. I never knew really what this law was going to stop--certainly not drinking; oh well, another useless DC law...

Controut there about SE people--whatever connotation that brings up -- and beer drinking...they drink on a far higher level than beer -- i think we all know who the beer drinkers are-- Hoodies drink Remy, Hennesey, Moet...ok? so the sales of beer in certain Hoods really won't bother most people anyway; I don't think SE was the Target Area for this law in the first place.-- Just my educated and experienced opinion. PEACE :)

Screw you ignorant arse. Maybe they should ban dog owners that don't wash or clean up after their pets. I don't blame the pets, I blame the owners. That alone would clean it up around DC.

You are absolutely right. I live in Mt. Pleasant and I've said as much to the store owners in Mt. Pleasant. They also banned the sale of alcohol after 10:00 pm with most of the stores closing down at 10:00 pm which is stupid.

"Not that bad" Please. Get real! If its not that bad why don't you live in SE. This single beer law is for all of the black and hispanic drunks that.

Congress had plenty of time to think about one single can of beer.Yet it took them days to be force to pass a 700billion dollar tax out on every single household in america.We all will pay it back one way or another because we don't have a choice.We all are worth more dead then alive to this government system-believe it or not.

Exactly pretending to be proactive meantime the same DC Council responsible for childwelfare are so busy banning single sales of beer and that an adoptive mother of three DC children has been allowed to collect checks for two DC children that have been dead in a freezer for more than a year. No oversight and no protection provided for DC children. Banning sales of single use of beer in Washington DC is pathetic trite.

they need to ban all sales of alcohol, cigarettes, and beer in the city. This includes clubs. THere needs to be a city-wide prohibition on smoking and drinking. Anyone caught, would be locked up for at least 1 year.
