Liquor, Laws, and Utah
Monday, we’re talking about the system of laws that control the sale of alcohol in Utah, including the infamous “Zion Curtain” regulation that’s been getting lots of attention lately. Proponents argue that these laws are crucial to protecting public health and safety, and that they provide safe spaces for the state’s teetotalers. The other side claims the laws are based on flimsy logic and harm Utah economically. They also contend the state monopoly on liquor distribution needs to be dissolved.
