Should Michigan Extend Last Call For Alcohol Till 4am?
Michigan lawmakers are debating the pros and cons of allowing bars in the state to sell alcohol until 4am instead of the 2am cut off that is in place now. There are supporters of both sides, but it looks like the two hour extension is gaining a little more ground.
There are some restrictions though according to ABC12. The expanded hours would only apply in cities with a downtown development district, like Flint. Business owners would have to pay about 10-thousand dollars a year for a special permit and meet certain security requirements.
Most of the permit sales would go to local police departments, and many people think that it would help boost the local economy. The other side of the coin argues that letting people get more drunk is a recipe for problems.
What do you think? Is it a good idea or would it just lead to this.
