Threats to State Regulation
Government regulation of all kinds is under attack these days. But state-based regulation of alcohol (guaranteed by the 21st Amendment) is critical to keeping underage drinking and adult over-consumption in check. Some powerful players in the alcohol industry are trying to undo decades of laws that were put into place after Prohibition for good reason: to protect public safety. If it were up to some lobbyists, alcohol would be sold like paper clips. Except that paper clips can’t kill you. Eat Drink Politics can help you understand this dangerous trend and assist with counter-lobbying strategies to preserve effective state regulation of alcohol.
