Opponents, including beer wholesalers, claim that such a change would allow minors to have easier access to alcohol. That argument is baseless and a smokescreen for stifling competition.

The same argument worked in regard to tobacco purchased, it too was a baseless argument but it worked.

I would love to be able to order a 6-pack of Alaskan Amber, to be consumed down here in the Lone Star state.

Its already against the law to sell cigarette lighters to teens. When do they make it illegal for a teen to buy yeast and sugar?

Seems to me that attentive parents are what makes the difference.

If anyone wants on the Michigan Cap Con ping list let me know.

Let’s see, when I was a minor we got alcohol by:
A) Getting an older friend/sibling to buy it for us.
B) Standing outside the liquour store until a “cool” adult agreed to buy it for us.
C) Finding liquor stores/bars that didn’t bother to card.
D) Getting a fake ID, or getting a real ID from an older friend/sibling that looked a bit like you.
E) Making hooch
F) Stealing it from adults or other underagers
G) Ordering pizza and getting beer delivered.

I’m pretty sure teenagers can still get one of those options to work in the 7-14 days they would be waiting for booze to be shipped to them.
