U.S. Postal Service Wants to Free You From the PLCB

The U.S. Postal Service is thinking about delivery alcohol as a way to not lose $16 bilion dollars every year.

Donahoe said delivering alcohol has the potential to raise as much as $50 million a year. He mentioned how customers might want to, for example, mail bottles of wine home when they tour vineyards.

Or how customers might want to, for example, live in Pennsylvania and not walk miles upon miles to find the nearest wine store that closes way too early and on holidays when everybody wants to drink. One problem with the USPS proposal: Delivery booze is currently illegal, as this entrepreneurial Penn student found out a little while ago. [Politico]
