WA narrowly defeats I-1100

An initiative in Washington State that would have eliminated the "3-tier" system (producer sells to distributor, who sells to consumer) was defeated this week by a somewhat narrow margin.  It is good to see that voters are challenging some of these laws that date back to Prohibition!  The Federal government allows the states to create monopolies in liquor distribution that can often lead to less selection and higher costs for consumers when there are additional layers in the supply chain.  Layers that are essentially unnecessary.
