One more shot: Liquor privatization may be on fall ballot - Initiative 1157

I post this not as an invitation to start a political discussion but rather simply to notify those other foodies out there who enjoy craft spirits and beverages currently not obtainable under the current state-run system that there may be hope for us yet.

I look forward to the day I can get exactly what I want at the liquor store and do so in an environment that offers a positive consumer experience.

Under this plan the current liquor taxes and “markup” on liquor sales, would remain in place, with tax revenues going back to the state. So, that argument against privatization should me moot.
