A Worthy Organization

With the legislative session just around the corner here is an organization worthy of a look by readers of this blog:   Marylanders For Better Beer and Wine Laws.  As most of you know it is illegal to directly ship wine to an individual in Maryland.  Ridiculous and crazy I know and something I have railed against for a while.  So what is one to do?  Have a close friend who lives in West Virginia and whose wife is a stay at home mom who can sign for packages?  Well that’s one solution, but the real answer to the problem is to get involved.  Every year for the past few years a bill has been introduced to change the law and every year the bill dies in the legislature.   The wholesalers have deep pockets and do not want to see their monopoly broken so it is an uphill battle.

 I will update readers as the session goes on but one great way is to join and support organizations like MBBWL.
