Should grocery and convenience stores be able to sell the same strength beer as liquor stores?

“I don’t think gas stations should be able to sell liquor at all, but the rest should all be the same. It should be a level playing field.”
“No. Anytime you make an alcoholic beverage or any other substance that’s so damaging to our population more available in a more concentrated form, you increase the use.”
“Yes, I think so. Kansas is probably the only place in the country where they can’t.”
“Yes. A person who’s drinking beer is by law of age and not in a vehicle. I don’t see any reason they should drink something weaker because they got it at a gas station. But I think a law against all liquor would be best.”
