    It's legal where I live to purchase moonshine

    in the store, as long as it comes from licensed distillers. They stock it in its own section, like it's a specialty liquor. It's sold in Mason jars with labels and bar codes; the cashier scans your jar of 'shine at checkout and announces your total as if you'd just bought a...
