- A tumblr site dedicated to the people and places that make up Oregon and Southwest Washington.
After living in Hawaii and California which both sell alcohol at grocery stores I wondered why that couldnt be done in Oregon. If sold in stores instead of liquor stores much overhead could be eliminated without revenue loss for the state. The taxes would be collected by the distributors and their would be competition in the market which could benefit the consumer. this seems to work well in CA and HI why not here. I looked up the OLCC charter which was written in the 30s and its purpose is some vague statement regarding supporting the Moral turpitude of the state, give me a break, we have medical marijuana, doctor assisted suicide and state sponsored gambling where are we promoting "moral turpitude"? its time to drastically cut back a state agency which provides little benefit to the people of Oregon.
