Wet/Dry Issues


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.

(The Following map will be updated when posted by the Alcoholic Beverage Control Board)
In Alabama there are 26 dry counties. However, municipalities that meet certain criteria can vote to go wet even if they are located within a dry county. The following map is provided by the Alcoholic Beverage Control Board and shows those counties that are currently dry in yellow (municipalities within dry counties that are wet are identified with an "x" and if more than one municipality is wet within the dry county, more than one "x" will appear) Click here to see the names of those wet cities in dry counties:
