Alcohol Justice (formerly the Marin Institute) has published a report on Big Alcohol’s efforts to privatize alcohol sales in control states. The report, titled “Control State Politics: How Big Alcohol is Dismantling Regulation State by State,” explains the likely outcomes to states that turn over alcohol sales to private businesses. These states may experience a short-term cash windfall, but loss of reliable income, coupled with increases in alcohol-related harm, will damage economic stability and public health in the longer term.
