State Reverses On Five Wives Vodka

The Idaho State Liquor Division has announced that it will make Five Wives Vodka available in Idaho by special order “to avoid unnecessary litigation.” In a news release, state Liquor Division Director Jeff Anderson said the division will immediately begin accepting special order request for the Ogden, Utah-made product, which it previously had declined to carry, in part because it deemed the brand offensive to the state's substantial Mormon population. “In a shared desire to avoid unnecessary litigation costs to Ogden's Own Distillery and the people of Idaho, today we have informed the makers of 'Five Wives' vodka that we will immediately begin processing special order requests for both on-premise licensees and retail customers,” Anderson said/Betsy Russell, Eye On Boise.

Question: Should the state of Idaho send Five Wives Vodka a bill for all that free publicity?
