Alcohol Vending Machines ‘Almost’ Good to Go in Connecticut
Recently, booze machines got the big thumbs up from the House of Representatives in Hartford.
According to the Hartford Courant, by a rousing vote of 110 to 35, the House showed they were in favor of automated machines that dispense beer, wine, and cider in restaurants and bars. It's not a done deal yet because the Senate must also vote in favor of the bill, which it rejected last year.
Here's how it works: To use the automated dispenser, you would need to purchase a payment card that would allow you to fill up on 32 ounces of beer or cider, or 10 ounces of wine. Alcohol dispensers are already legal in Michigan.
I've got questions. What kind of beer and what kind of wine? I'm not drinking swill, my friend. I ain't drinking no Natty Ice or Keystone Light! Don't even get me started on the wine. What if they fill those dispensers up with MD-20/20 or Wild Irish Rose? I can't even stand the smell of those abominations.
Opponents of the bill are asking questions like, "How do you prevent underage kids from buying the booze cards?" and "Who's going to prevent individuals from buying up more cards if they've already had too much to drink?"
