B. As a group they pose al security danger to Marylanders?
C. Marylanders were clear that they hate these wines and don't want them on their shores?
ANSWER: D (Wasn't that fun!!)
That's right, Question Quids! Marylanders will be banned from having any wines of foriegn origin shipped to them under their new wine shipping bill because only RETAILERS sell foriegn made wines and the new Maryland law bans retailers (in-state and out-of-state) from shipping to Marylanders.
EXTRA FUN WINE FACT: The Maryland lawmakers couldn't even bring themselves to pass a law allowing Maryland retailers to ship OUT OF STATE where legal?
Isn't this fun??!! Wait, there's more.
DOUBLE FUN WINE FACT: Marylanders will be banned from having any wine shipped to them from Wine-of-the-Month Clubs and Auction houses. This means that Marylanders won't get to have wine club gifts given to them and it means that Marylanders will be banned from having 99% of all rare and collectible wines of both domestic and foreign origin shipped to them because Auction Houses and Wine of the Month clubs are retailers.
