Idaho ‘Honcho’ Sues For Booze Right

A man from southeastern Idaho who fancies himself as the "Head Honcho" of the Ethereal Enigmantic Euphoric Movement Toward Civilized Hedonism is suing Idaho for allowing individual towns to ban sale of liquor in bars. This, according to the Herald Journal. Philip H. Mockli, of Preston, claims his First Amendment freedoms are being violated by the city of Preston's decision to allow only beer to be sold in bars. Mockli told the Herald Journal that he believes Franklin County Republicans are pushing "their conservative agenda on the community by allowing only beer sales in Preston's taverns." More here.

Question: Should Idahoans have a right to drink liquor in any Gem State town?
