Goner Message Board / ???? / Illinois Alderman Wants to Ban the 40 oz
Posted: Nov 18, 2005 12:37 am
 
In an interview today, this Alderman said there was the same amount of alcohol in a 40 oz as there is in 6 shots of whiskey...and the rest below in the paper....


"On Monday, [the commission] had the task of studying a possible citywide ban on single-serving cans and bottles of 40 ounces or less sold for consumption elsewhere.
Alderman Steven Purcell pushed the City Council to send the issue to the commission because he is seeing a lot of single-serving containers being misused.
"Walk through some of the alleys in downtown and single-serve bottles and cans are in every nook," Purcell said."

We already have a ban on 40oz bottles in Florida...gotta drive to GA to get one. I've never understood this, because if you can only buy a 32oz bottle, you're just going to BUY another bottle of beer to make up for it. Like it's going to make people less drunk? Even people who beg for beer money are just going to panhandle enough money to buy another. I don't see this making any sense...

In St. Louis you can't go to the store and buy one beer. You have to buy two. They think if you're gonna buy just one you're more likely to drink and drive.

Ummm... ok. Gime two, please!

basically the only reason people pass laws like this is because they see 40ozers on rap videos and they don't want negroes in their town.

If you are visiting Arizona they do not accept out of state ID cards... It must be an out of state DRIVERS LICENCE. In other words you have to drive to drink.

Fuck Steel... EVIL EYE!!!
(actually I love steel)

No shit, my wife had a friend in town from Texas during the Reigning Sound show and they wouldn't let her in even w/ an out of state DRIVERS LICENCE. They said it looked fake, she had to hang out in the underage section all night, she was like 30 years old, retarded. Goes for bands too I guess some of the Detroit Cobras were having trouble getting served. Fucking retarded.
