Okay, not prohibition at all. But here in my State hard liquor is sold by State owned liquor stores. No private sales allowed. In free market capitalistic America. WTF is that all about?

Vote YES on 1183.

Initiative 1183, a ballot measure that will appear on the November 2011 statewide ballot, will privatize the distribution and sale of liquor in Washington state, provide hundreds of millions of dollars in new revenues to state and local governments, and increase consumer choice and convenience — while strengthening regulations governing the sale of liquor. It also updates some laws regulating the wholesale distribution of wine.
