INTER-STATE WINE SHIPPING LEGALIZED
Happy, happy, happy!
"The Supreme Court decided yesterday to allow US vineyards to sell wine over the internet to other states. Previous laws restricted sales to within the state.
The decision overturned laws in Michigan and New York which stopped internet wine purchases except within the state. Industry observers hope the change will benefit smaller producers.
The court ruled that restricting sales was unconstitutional because it favored producers within the state. The case centered on the 21st Amendment which ended Prohibition in 1933."
