I'll Drink To That!

I do not really see any purpose served by the Sunday prohibition on alcohol sales. I also believe the 21 year old drinking age actually encourages irresponsible consumption of alcohol.

WTHR reports:

The special session of the Indiana General Assembly is over, but it's not too early to think about next year.

That's the strategy of retailers who want to get rid of Indiana's ban on Sunday carryout alcohol sales.

The group known as Hoosiers for Beverage Choices is asking customers at more than
1,000 retail outlets across the state to sign a petition promoting Sunday carryout sales. The campaign runs through July 19.

The group formed nearly a year ago but dropped their efforts to change the law during the regular legislative session this year. President Grant Monahan of the Indiana Retail Council says it's getting active again to remind consumers they're still
committed to the change.

Participating retailers include Kroger, Marsh and Jewel supermarkets and several convenience store chains.

I think if alcohol laws didn't make booze a taboo, encouraging young people to sneak around, enticing them with an opportunity to rebel, then far fewer alcohol abusers would develop.
