Why are alcohol sales so limited in Mo Co? I'm just wondering why places like Trader Vic's, Sam's, grocery stores, 7-11, etc don't sell beer and wine? Are "beer/wine/delis" a chain or franchise? Or are they all privately owned? Are the liquor stores that sell hard liquor state run? I've lived here 5 years now and never understood why it's so hard to buy alcohol. Is it just Mo Co or statewide? I know it's easier to buy beer and wine in Ocean City, so I'm guessing it's just Mo Co. What's the scoop?
