There could be. Some control states limit the number of listings so producers have to pick and choose. They can't list as many products as they want to. Some states accomplish the same thing through listing fees. Companies don't want to pay the listing fees on products that don't sell very well. In license states (i.e., not control) it's up to the distributor what they want to carry. They may put limitations on which of a producer's products they'll carry, even if the state doesn't.

Sometimes producers won't make things available in some places because their supplies are limited and so they don't offer those products in states where they don't think they will sell well. Sometimes it's the producer's decision, but more often it's the state or distributor.
