In the great state of Michigan you can't buy alcohol on Sundays before noon.
Anyone else think that is ridiculous? Do other states have similar laws?
I think they are STUPID as well. There is no logical reason for the law

I think that is the same law Washington state has. Down in Killeen Texas they do not have liquor stores at all ,do not sell it in the county . It is called a dry county

Every state has their own laws regarding liquor sales--the laws will even vary within counties in the states. In Kansas, there were no liquor sales on Sundays at all--at least in the county where I lived. Beer was sold in grocery stores, but only 3.2 percent alcohol. Higher alcohol-content beer was sold in liquor stores. There are dry counties in Kansas, as well, where no liquor of any sort is sold.
In Tennessee, there is a distillery (Jack Daniels) in a dry county. Ironic, isn't it? In my area, beer and wine coolers are sold in grocery stores, but not in liquor stores. Liquor stores can sell wine and hard liquor only--no other items (I looked for mulling spices one winter, and was told that they could only sell liquor). I believe you can buy beer in grocery stores on Sundays, but liquor stores are closed. In some surrounding areas, there have been meetings to decide whether to allow restaurants to sell liquor by the drink.
Laws differ everywhere, and I'd be willing to be that if you checked into it, even within Michigan, there will be a variety of laws, depending on the county.
