US Laws are suppose to be simple, concise and easy for the average citizen to understand.
Try the shipping of wine and see what you think in regards to simplicity. For wine clubs, this is a major issue.
First, states are allowed to make their own laws. It’s been like that since Prohibition ended close to 100 years ago!
Some states allow wineries from out of state to ship directly to their citizens. Others do not.
Some states allow out of state retailers to ship to their citizens. Others do not.
Some states allow in state wineries to ship to their consumers. Others do not.
Some states allow in state retailers to ship to consumers. Others like Utah clearly hate wine and all alcohol and do not.
Other than states are allowed to do whatever they want, what’s simple to understand about these laws? Why are they so different from one state to another when there is a federal drinking age?
