This sounds like a cop talking. Am I right.

No. Just one who tries to understand the laws. There's often more to it with cases like this, so I'm hesitant to rush to judgment.

I'm not sure what your point is here. Intent is a basic category of the law. TyTanium might sound like a cop, or he might sound like someone who's smart enough to know what will and won't get him arrested.

Your semantics may seem like compelling arguments to you, but they won't protect you from legal prosecution. That's what's relevant to anyone living in Alabama.

From what I hear, there are people doing just that...to a degree. You can call it civil disobedience, just don't call it too loud or you will end up in trouble with the law and the only thing that you will be brewing is prison hooch.

If I were to brew in Alabama, I would rather go about my business quietly and work to change the laws, but I guess maybe I'm just too old to be be so rebellious...

You dare to use logic and sound reasoning in this state?? Suppose the next thing you're gonna tell me is that you have indoor plumbing, shoes, and electricity! Uppity is what you is.

So are we banning people from registering to this site that live in AL. :-) Such a weird event to happen to one store and not another

Good man. If you did, I would feel that it's my civil responsibility to confiscate and dispose of your beer for you.

So, do those of us who are already here get to be grandfathered in? The correct answer is yes by the way.

I'm pretty sure everyone from Alabama who visits this site are only here for the awesome smoking meat and soapmaking threads.
