Interesting thread. I find it someone endearing that the U.S. has so many different liquor laws, depending on state. State rights on this subject are not only interesting, but as they should be, that being a local issue.

For an intense look at the differences, check the Utah-Nevada border. In Utah it is actually illegal to bring any amount of liquor into the state purchased elsewhere, even if it is in a sealed bottle in your trunk. In the meantime, in neighboring Nevada, you can buy liquor any hour of the day, transport and consume it on city streets, and basically do anything you want with it, with the exception of driving while drunk.

In Oregon you can only by beer and wine in stores, you want hard liquor you have to go to a state run liquor store..only open certain ours and closed sundays.

And we are to stupid to pump are own gas, but smart enough to pay for full service by walking in to the store to pay for it.

Oregon is not alone with this. I believe around half of the states still require liquor to be purchased at state controlled stores. BTW, many Oregon state stores are open on Sundays.

What's the situation in Maryland? I found convenience stores at gas stations with huge liquor sections in Ocean City, but couldn't find any alcoholic beverages at a Safeway in Baltimore.
