Hooch hardware

A measure to legalize the sale of non consumable drinking “accessories” at liquor stores passed the House several weeks ago on a 64-27 vote.

If
House Joint Resolution 1015 passes the Senate, the question, which
amends the Oklahoma Constitution, will be left up to the people of
Oklahoma.

To allow nonalcoholic beverages (or mixers) on the shelves, or not?

That
has been the quandary for the legislation’s author, Rep. Colby
Schwartz, who probably needs a drink after dealing with competing
stakeholders about the definition of “mixer.” His original version
allowed the sale of such indulgences in liquor stores, but those
provisions were omitted.
