I don’t drink or know enough about this to have much of an opinion. That said, state control is seldom a good thing for anything.
If anyone wants to be added to the Michigan Cap Con ping list, let me know.

(What does it profit a man if he gains the whole world but loses his soul?)
An implicit rule for any government organization or program is that it must not
solve any problem. Once created, it is in that organization's best interest to perpetuate, and to a lesser degree, manage the problem. If it solves the problem, the organization will be dissolved. If the problem gets completely out of hand, the orgnization may be dissolved and replaced, or at least will receive increased, unwanted scrutiny and supervision.
If that organization can strike a happy middle, it will continue to justify its existence, slowly increasing and expanding its jurisdiction, influence and power.
Nothing new going on here, apart from somebody else finally noticing the above. Nothing will come of it, except perhaps some more funding for the program(s) in question.
