I guess I will be in east point this Sunday! I do not understand why there are so many laws regulating alcohol. I believe the legal drinking age should be 16 so parents could teach their children to drink responsibly. It would cut down on so many problems.

I just find it simultaneously hilarious and annoying that "liberal" Atlanta has to wait until Jan 1, 2012 while more conservative municipalities surrounding it have it effective in the upcoming weeks.

Can someone explain to me how the "Blue Laws" work in this state? I was a little surprised to see the language of the bill when I voted--that sales would only occur between 12:30-11:30 on Sunday.

Who or what is dictating that time range? Is that a state-level law that can't be overturned by local referendums?

The time range is dictated by the same state law (SB 10) that authorizes the package sales. The law only allows sales in municipalities where a local referendum has been passed by the voters.
