That's a blatant lie, unless it's based upon the argument that the existing structure makes liquor so expensive that poor people can't afford to drink.....and we KNOW that's not the case!
The state has an opportunity to make a ton of money by doing away with the ABC system and opening operations up to private enterprise, who will have to pay to be licensed.
As we saw last year right here in New Hanover County, the local ABC board can't even control their spending, let alone consumption.
Get rid of the ABC system and license liquor sales. Join the 21st Century.
