    Re: What is a control state?

    Believe me, I much prefer the DC system of independent liquor stores. I just don't like paying a 9% tax on my liquor - that takes away a lot of the advantage of competitive market pricing.

    Re: What is a control state?

    Montgomery County, Maryland, is unique. It is the only control county within what is otherwise a license jurisdiction. Is it possible this is a government agency that is actually run for the benefit of its constituents, hence the low prices?

    I wouldn't know. I have never seen any government agency do this nor do I believe I ever will.
