Maryland Casinos sell booze 24/7

It does not take much common sense and practical wisdom to conclude that serving booze 24/7 in casinos, even if you have to pay for it, is a really bad idea. But that’s what’s happening in several casinos in Maryland.

Local tavern owners and operators have been vocal about their opposition. They know they cannot compete with casinos if they are allowed to sell liquor around the clock.

But there is more to be concerned about, and that is the number of people who are going to lose even more of their wits as they fuel up while losing their money. Not to mention the increased numbers of drunk driving arrests that will occur as casino patrons, numbed by their booze and their losses stumble out of the casinos and into their cars and hit the road. I know. I was one of them, and the casino I gambled in, Ho Chunk in Wisconsin, didn’t sell booze all day and all night long.

  1. Keep it up, Sandy. Never stop. Never give in. They think you’ll get tired of the struggle and when they realize you won’t, they will.
