Dormant Commerce Clause Trumps 21st amendment

That means, according to a 5-4 decision by the Supremes today, New York and Michigan's laws against direct shipment of wine to their residents is unconstitutional. Hopefully, the opinion applies to all 22 states that have direct shipment prohibitions. Maybe I can finally send some Oregon Pinot to my family in Virginia. Thus far it would have been a felony to do so.

See Granholm v. Heald.

Woohoo!
