Blue Law on the way out

Colorado law may soon allow liquor stores to remain open and sell on Sundays. The current state law has prohibited the sale of alcohol from liquor stores on Sundays since Prohibition ended in 1933.

Let that be a reminder that once legislation is enacted to prohibit or restrict something, it take a very long time to fully repeal it.
