So, no more MARYLAND GOV HOGAN OR O'MALLEY controlling liquor licensing---no more Baltimore Mayor Rawlings-Blake/Pugh controlling liquor licensing---the battle for issuing and controlling LIQUOR in US is MOVING FORWARD to only the global 1%.
Of course the corruption, violence, cronyism remains----but takes our US local, state, and national 5% global banking players OUT of the MATCH.
Looks like BOSS HOGG is GONE WITH THE WIND in MOVING FORWARD. REAL left social progressives want oversight and accountability in this criminal enterprise-----that is what FREE MARKET economics requires.
Getting an Alcohol License in Georgia
March 13, 2014
In order to sell, buy or distribute alcohol in Georgia, you must have a variety of licenses. For example, Georgia requires three types of licenses/permits to sell alcohol: a local alcohol license, a state alcohol license and a Federal Basic Permit. There are also many different types of licenses, such as Brewpub, Broker, Farm Winery, etc.
And it doesn’t stop there. There are also different types of alcohol, such as distilled spirits, fortified wine, hard cider, etc. Finding a right license for you can get a little confusing; luckily, there are lots of resources out there that can help simplify this matter.
Local Alcohol License
Be sure to check with your local authorities about the requirements needed for your local alcohol license because each jurisdiction could alter slightly from their neighbors.
If your business is in Atlanta, the Atlanta Police Department (APD) provides an informative fact sheet about the process of obtaining a license in the Atlanta area. They break it down into five steps, so make sure you don’t skip anything. They also list the fees needed. This number could vary depending on the type of establishment you own and the type of alcohol you’re selling.
State Alcohol License
Once you receive your local alcohol license, you can then start the process for your state license. The Georgia Department of Revenue (DOR) handles state alcohol licenses (and tobacco licenses). There are 4 different areas of alcohol licenses from DOR:
- Manufacturers (Brokers, Brewery, Brewpub, Distillery, Farm Winery, Importers, Non-Beverage Manufacturer/Importer, Wine Manufacturer, Wine Special Order Shipping)
- Wholesale Distributors
- Retailers (Consumption on Premises, Hotel In-Room, Limousine Carriers Permit, Retail Dealer, Retail Package)
- Special Events (For Profit, Non-Profit, Use, Wine Auction)
The Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau, a branch of the U.S. Department of the Treasury, administers and renews federal alcohol permits online. You can learn more about the application on their website. Also, some good news: there is no fee for this permit!
Below we see the US FEDERAL level of alcohol laws and control and yes, our National Institutes of Health are involved because in developed nations with US Constitutions and rights of citizens to protection from harmful products-----the NIH along with our local public health department have always been required to make sure ALCOHOL is safe to consume------that manufacturers actually label alcohol content properly -----but that does not exist in FOREIGN ECONOMIC ZONES overseas-----so global foreign corporations tied to alcohol manufacturing and distributions brought to US FOREIGN ECONOMIC ZONES as here in Maryland by Gov Larry Hogan------GUINNESS BREWERY-----owned by global 1% ARABIC corporation -----
DOES NOT HAVE TO OPERATE IN US ABIDING BY ANY US LAWS----IT CAN OPERATE AS IT DOES IN THIRD WORLD WITH NO OVERSIGHT OR ACCOUNTABILITY AND NO US 99% WE THE PEOPLE IMBIBING.
As we see already here in US prices for mugs of beer----glasses of wine------shots of liquor are becoming more and more and more expensive---when only the global 1% are drinking----the higher prices exclude need of sales in volumes.
Not that our NIH or local public health has been protecting public health surrounding alcohol these few decades ----but MOVING FORWARD these oversight structures will disappear completely.
No matter how much Federal funding for alcoholism tied to AFFORDABLE CARE ACT is funneled to local communities today------DARK AGES third world FOREIGN ECONOMIC ZONES could care less about people with addictions.
Is that product really 60 PROOF----80 PROOF----100 PROOF----well, our US 99% will never be sure at the store.
National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism (NIAAA)
General Alcohol Policy
A combination of Federal, State, and local laws help shape the role alcohol plays in the United States, including how we:
- Manufacture alcohol
- Sell alcohol
- Decide who can drink alcohol
- Respond to alcohol-related problems
- Whether to allow sale of alcohol in the State
- Whether to allow importing alcohol into the State
- How to distribute alcohol throughout the State
- Possession of alcohol in the State
Minimum Legal Drinking Age
Even with this flexibility for the States, Congress retains the power to use financial and tax incentives to promote certain alcohol policies, such as the minimum legal drinking age. The Federal Uniform Drinking Age Act of 1984 sets the minimum legal drinking age to 21 and every State abides by that standard.
According to this Act, the Federal government can withhold ten percent of Federal funding for highways from States that do not prohibit people under age 21 from buying or publically possessing any alcoholic beverage. While every State abides by this standard, State law varies on specifics about possession and exceptions to the law, such as allowing people under 21 to drink with their parents.

The last public policy discussion over our US sovereignty being attacked over alcohol and liquor control in our communities, counties, states, and nation----this article addresses some good concerns over what are laws tied to cronyism and anti-free market. Days of BLUE LAWS for example installed for religious observance have become outdated.
What our US 99% WE THE PEOPLE need to consider is this----the US has always been open to alcohol consumption----although regulated-----we have never been a tea-totaling FAR-RIGHT WING, AUTHORITARIAN, MILITARISTIC, EXTREME WEALTH EXTREME POVERTY ---LIBERTARIAN MARXIST society ----where overseas the ability to consume alcohol is made a THEOCRATIC or MARXIST issue. When we go FAR-RIGHT WING---we are losing freedoms around ALCOHOL.......don't believe this article and all its FREE MARKET coming from same global banking 1% PLAYERS.
Who installed PROHIBITION----right wing-----who is National Review----RIGHT WING.

Prohibition Is Alive and Well in Absurd State Alcohol Laws
By Anastasia Boden National Review
& Jonathan Wood
April 16, 2018 6:30 AM
They only hurt businesses and burden consumers.
Nearly 100 years after Prohibition’s repeal, government still can’t seem to shake its obsession with our vices. Although society has advanced immeasurably over that time, the puritanical obsession with people wetting their whistles continues. The nation’s paternalistic and corrupt experiment with banning alcohol has been widely decried as a failure. Nevertheless, piles of costly, anti-competitive, and inane alcohol laws remain in force today.
The modern vestiges of Prohibition tend to be as corrupt as that failed institution. In the 1920s, Prohibition enriched organized crime, which bribed officials and law enforcement to protect their racket. Today, arbitrary alcohol laws enrich entrenched businesses by preventing competition, and they return the favor with campaign contributions to the politicians who defend those laws.
Idaho, for example, restricts the number of liquor licenses, allowing just one for every 1,500 people. The government claims that the limit is meant to further temperance, which Idaho’s 1889 constitution calls an element of government’s “first concern.” In reality, the limit acts as an anti-competitive boon to the established businesses that already have a license and can keep out new competitors, as well as to the politicians who can grant exemptions through special legislation.
In Indiana, only liquor stores can sell cold beer, while groceries stores, convenience stores, and pharmacies are stuck selling beer at room temperature. There is no good justification for this. The state claims it doesn’t want people chugging cold beer in the parking lot before getting behind the wheel. But how exactly does that justify letting cold beer be sold in liquor stores but not in Whole Foods? Does the state have any evidence that customers are more likely to get sloshed in the parking lot if a store sells both cold beer and organic kale? No, Indiana’s law is a transparent attempt to benefit politically active liquor-store owners at their competitors’ expense.
Some outmoded alcohol laws are downright ridiculous. In Virginia, happy hour is legal, but the state heavily restricts what business owners can say about it. Bars may advertise that they have “happy hour.” But they cannot name their happy-hour prices anywhere outside the store — which effectively renders any happy-hour advertisement useless. The entire point of happy hour is that drinks are sold at a reduced price.
Even more absurd, Virginia forbids bars from calling their happy hour by anything other than the generic terms “happy hour” or “drink specials.” In other words, the state bravely protects its residents from lame alcohol puns such as “WINEdown Wednesday.” George Washington, a whiskey distiller, home brewer, lover of liberty, and Virginian, must be rolling in his sarcophagus.
We shouldn’t laugh off these silly laws. They have significant real-world effects, especially on bars that need to advertise to attract customers. Chef Geoff owns an eponymous restaurant in Tysons Corner, Va., where he promises “great food, libation,” and “merriment.” But the restaurant cannot truthfully advertise that its happy-hour specials beat the competition, costing Chef Geoff business and his lost customers a good time.
Represented by Pacific Legal Foundation, Chef Geoff has filed a First Amendment lawsuit challenging this silly censorship. The government cannot prohibit truthful speech about legal business practices, even if the information relates to alcohol. The Supreme Court has repeatedly held that the First Amendment protects the right to advertise truthfully, and consumers entering the marketplace benefit from such information. That’s as true for happy hour as for any other lawful business practice. There is no “vice” exception to the First Amendment.
Comments It’s about time that states learn the lesson they should have a century ago. Unnecessary, corrupt, and inane alcohol laws only hurt businesses and burden consumers.
In China----there are very few laws surrounding alcohol consumption asd of course crimes and addictions tied to broad consumption. A global 1% foreign Chinese alcohol manufacturer would not want any of our US laws tied to protecting public health----protecting consumers--and CLINTON/BUSH/OBAMA----ONE WORLD US FOREIGN ECONOMIC ZONES would not enforce any of our US laws surrounding alcohol.
What are the laws on alcohol in China
China has rather weak alcohol consumption policies with virtually no age restriction on drinking. Statistics show the upsurge in the Chinese economy has resulted in a noticeable increase in alcohol consumption as well as an increase in crimes or problems associated with heavy drinking such as domestic violence and child abuse.
On the other hand-----ARABIC nations are very strict against the sale and consumption of alcohol----but only for their 99% of citizens----of course global 1% and their 2% drink whatever, wherever they want. Now, the global 1% ARABIC family buying GUINNESS BREWERY are not MUSLIM-----but they will be bringing that global labor pool of 99% ARABIC citizens to be enslaved in that MARYLAND global beer factory-----who may be held by SHARIAH law---no drinking.
This oil-rich country has some extremely strict laws – and pretty serious punishments, including flogging regarding alcohol use. While it’s illegal for the little people, however, the sultan of Brunei's family are known for hosting extravagant parties that don’t seem dry in the slightest.
In Bahrain, alcohol is only available in hotels and through private licenses for sale to non-Muslims only. Drinking alcohol in public is still illegal, and being drunk can actually get you thrown behind bars.
United Arab Emirates
While non-Muslim residents may apply for a license to drink liquor in their own homes and a permit to drink them in licensed establishments, the drinking culture here among non-Muslims — or non-religious Muslims — is huge. That said, the laws are still very strict — if you’re caught drinking without a license or you cause trouble while under the influence, don’t expect any leniency.
The FOREIGN ECONOMIC ZONES in third world nations these several decades have allowed global corporate campuses filled with multi-national corporations to decide what laws and societal structures will be allowed on those campuses. So, in a US FOREIGN ECONOMIC ZONE as Baltimore, a Chinese foreign alcohol manufacturer will be allowed to say-----ANYTHING GOES WITH DRINKING on its global corporate campus-----while the ARABIC alcohol global factory may say----NO DRINKING FOR OUR EMPLOYEES.
Below we see BANGLADESH which is signing TRANS PACIFIC TRADE PACT updating its alcohol laws to being VERY STRICT-----
MOVING FORWARD IN US FOREIGN ECONOMIC ZONES----WORKING 15-18 HOURS A DAY AS GLOBAL FACTORY AND WHITE COLLAR WORKERS-----NO TIME FOR ALCOHOL----THESE ALCOHOL LAWS WILL GO FAR-RIGHT WING---NO ALCOHOL FOR 99% US WE THE PEOPLE OR OUR NEW TO US 99% IMMIGRANTS---

New alcohol laws: Alcohol-free zones in 6 months (UPDATED)
- 27 Jul 2015 at 13:43
- WRITER: JON FERNQUEST
New alcohol-free zones and entertainment zones within six months will clarify where alcohol can and cannot be sold.
Alcohol to be banned in new alcohol-free zones to be created within 6 months
The government on Monday added a clarification as to what "near" means in the vaguely worded junta order banning alcohol sales "near" educational institutions. The clarification comes after a weekend of confusion and conjecture over exactly what the government was doing with regards to alcohol sales.
Enforcement will depend on the creation of new "entertainment zones" where alcohol can be sold and new "alcohol-free zones" where alcohol cannot be sold.
These new zones will update the last set of zones which were created in 2002. The zoning process will take 180 days (6 months). Until then, the spokesman said there's nothing that says existing operators cannot sell alcohol within 300 metres of any school, although police did start enforcing the alcohol ban immediately, raiding and shutting down pubs near Rangsit University in Pathum Thani and the University of the Thai Chamber of Commerce (UTCC) this weekend.
What happened was that the National Council for Peace and Order (NCPO) published an order under Section 44 of the interim constitution last week stating only that alcohol could not be sold "near" schools, colleges and universities, but did not set a radius for the alcohol-free zones (dry zones). That order came after the cabinet approved Prime Minister's Office regulations banning alcohol within 300 metres of universities and technical colleges. However, that directive has not been published in the Royal Gazette yet and would not become law until 30 days after it was so published. The seemingly overlapping orders left both the public and police confused over what areas were legal to sell alcohol in, with many speculating that large swathes of Bangkok, Pattaya and Phuket would be designated dry zones.
Under the old zoning scheme, many bars are said to have been operating illegally, but under the new zoning scheme, those bars may end up becoming legal. Zoning of entertainment areas should be done every two years.
Booze rules dispirit customers, bar owners
Critics complain new curbs on alcohol sales go too far and hurt business
Pubs and restaurants surrounding the University of the Thai Chamber of Commerce (UTCC) have gone quiet as blasting music along the streets was shut off from 9pm.
"Police asked us to close early tonight due to the new law that bans alcoholic drink sales near universities and vocational colleges," said Weerapol Sirikulsing, owner of Sanrak Hut, a liquor outlet near the university.
The alcohol ban is an amendment of Section 44 of the interim charter which was signed by Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha on Thursday.
Under the new restrictions, any pub or nightclub that allows entry for or sells alcohol to people aged under 20, or operates after the legal hours will have its licence revoked, or will be ordered campaign Meaning: a situation in which everything is well organized or arranged Thai Translation: ความเป็นระเบียบเรียบร้อย Learn more to shut for five years.
Bars, restaurants, and convenience stores are also banned from selling alcohol near schools, universities, and student accommodation (student dormitories) with "near" meaning within 300m.
The new law is part of a junta campaign to impose order during nighttime hours which includes new measures to get rid of the teenage street racers (or dek wen) who can typically be heard racing around the streets of Bangkok in the wee hours of the morning.
Some question whether the new law can be strictly enforced without hurting Thailand's tourism industry because in the densely populated center of Bangkok many popular nightlife and hotel areas are within 300 meters of a university or college (See map here).
Shortly after midnight on Sunday, two bars located in Pathumthani near Rangsit University, named Bungalow and M.3/2, were the first bars to be raided, shutdown and stripped of their license to sell alcohol (See here)
At one pub name Sanrak Hut, two customers finished up their beers as the pub closed earlier than usual.
Wisut Chokpold, a 21-year-old university student, said he came by the pub about 8pm to unwind after he wrote a long exam, but was informed by the owner that he couldn't order more beer...
...Mr Wisut said he usually hangs out with friends at alcohol outlets near the university three or four days a week because he needs to relax after his studies. Having pubs and restaurants located around the campus is convenient for him.
"It's not a cure-all to solve the problem of under-age drinking because even though all the open pubs are a few kilometres away from here, students who want to drink will still go there," he said.
The owner of one typical pub, O-yua Pub & Restaurant near Kasetsart University, said he is considering closing down his 16-year-old business that employs 200 people because 30-40% of the restaurant's income comes from selling alcoholic beverages.
In front of one pub, the owner of a fried meatballs stall says almost all of his customers are university students who hang out in bars and declares: "I suspect if alcohol outlets around here are closed down, my sales will take a hit. However, as a father I don't want to see my children hang out in a place like this."
KEY ECONOMIC ZONES
An industry group of more than 80 alcohol outlet owners has called on the prime minister to review the new laws, claiming they will harm the economy and many workers.
The group also voiced concern that key economic zones in Bangkok such as Siam Square near Chulalongkorn University, the Asok area near Srinakharinwirot University, Victory Monument, and tourist destinations in other provinces such as Nimmanhemin Road in Chiang Mai, would be damaged by the new laws.
The only exemptions now are for registered hotels and special entertainment zones, for example, Patpong, Royal City Avenue (RCA) and some areas on Ratchadapisek Road.
"People in the government should think of what would happen if restaurants in Siam Paragon or CentralWorld cannot serve wine, or if Hard Rock Cafe or Khao San Road doesn't have whiskey and vodka," said the spokesman for the alcohol industry group.
When US far-right wing installed PROHIBITION during ROBBER BARON few decades in ROARING 20S-----the US saw GREASED LIGHTING-----bootleggers with the fastest cars outrunning local police----or in US cities there was AL CAPONE and mafia---
What is MOVING FORWARD today in US FOREIGN ECONOMIC ZONES------will be the opposite. Being a BOOTLEGGER----or a CRIME FAMILY running home-made brew----does not work well in DEEP, DEEP, REALLY DEEP STATES---HOMELAND SECURITY ACROSS ALL US STATES being made FOREIGN ECONOMIC ZONES. Where our US 99% black, white, and brown citizens may find BOOTLEGGING the only employment in town----it will be met with DEADLY FORCE----
MOVING FORWARD in US FOREIGN ECONOMIC ZONES------soaring prices for alcohol any way served for global 1% and their 2%-----NO ALCOHOL FOR YOU----to the 99% of US and new immigrant citizens. It will be hard to outrun DEEP, DEEP, REALLY DEEP STATE.
