And yes, they're serious.

Real talk: even if they're somehow totally right, 50 kids a year die? That doesn't sound so bad. 13 million people, say 4 million are under 21. 50/4000000 = 0.0000125. So each kid has like a 0.0013% chance of dying from this law? It would save more lives to ban cars, but no one does that because they're not idiots. Just sell the beer.

Disclaimer: I don't support killing kids for beer. Mostly. Also it's probably more like 3 million under 21, but whatever.

Wow, fucking red states and thier scare tactics. Washington state passed that law two years ago and trust me it is not easy, even for me, a 23 year old legal adult to get alcohol. Most stores keep them in locked cabinets now, and the ones that don't have those cap lock things on all the bottles, even the cheap shit. There is also literally no stores that doesn't card freaking everyone, senior citizens included. As for the financial aspect, I kind of dont like it. The state liquor tax is 20.5% which is freaking ridiculous. The state is making all kinds of money off of that shit. Must be why all the cops around here drive brand new dodge charger patrol cars.

I'm a bit lucky here. Around half the time I don't get carded, everything from shitty cardboard wine boxes (srsly they're like kids juice boxes it's weird) to 160 proof agony sitting on the same shelf. They did recently move the hard stuff from the side by the door to next to the registers though - I imagine they were having theft problems from the ever increasing student population.

Just looked up the tax. 20 cents a gallon on beer and wine, $3 on spirits under 100 proof, double for over. Amounts to 60 cents for 6 pack or a typical bottle of spirits. That's what, around 7, 8 percent? 3x that is nuts

Yeah the tax thing is an issue. Just saw a news report the other day about the alarming number of Washington residents driving to Oregon to get it tax free.

And to your comment Red, union based doesn't mean they hold leftist beliefs, as this ad so adequately demonstrates. Also this is the spam forum, let me babble without any fear of correction dammit!

So they've succeeded in driving revenue out of their state. Way to go Washington.

Unions have become weird ever since the FBI started raiding their meetings with fucking guns.
