As the poll results continue to trickle in, I am getting more and more excited. As an adult with rights to adult decisions and choices, it will be a great to go to my neighborhood grocery store for my dinner's wine selection instead of 30 minutes away.

It's been 79 years since it was repealed because we, as a nation, realized 79 years ago it was a bad idea. So, why nearly 80 years later, does every other county in Texas still cling to their own convoluted forms of Prohibition?
