A “Ludicrous” Law Concerning Alcohol

Updated 5 years ago

A law that was designed to help boutique beer and liquor stores is trying to be fixed by Maine legislators.The main reason for this fix up is for an effort to keep children from having to witness adults drinking alcoholic beverages, which has made it difficult for stores to hold taste testings.The amendment said the events “must be conducted in a manner that precludes the possibility of observation by children.” The new law took effect on the twelth of September.Leslie Thistle, of Bangor Wine and Cheese said that during a monthly testing she had to use sheets to drape across storefront windows. Additionally, she calls the law ludicrous.
