Non-Real Estate Post About Buying Wine in NJ

New Jersey Legislators Line Their Pockets with Liquor Money

New Jersey is the only state in the Union that bans the intrastate shipment of wine. This means that NJ also has the right to ban interstate (ie California to New Jersey) shipments of wine and still comply with the new United States Supreme Court Ruling. Consequently, NJ is now the only state that does not allow its citizens to buy wine over the Internet. I’m guessing that alcohol distributors in the state bought the legislation that protects their monopoly.
