So went to a wine tasting at a friends home in Massachusetts yesterday. And the company doing the wine selling – they cannot ship to Rhode Island residences.
So I dashed an email to my representative, senator and speaker of the house. In addition I’ve posted on facebook and twitter to contact your representatives and let them know we’re not happy about that.
So now I have to go in Attleboro, MA to get my wine. Ut si! I can transport it across state lines but Fedex and UPS can’t? What the bloody fuck.
If you are a RI registered voter you can go to the RI Secretary of State Nellie Gorbea’s page and enter your name, address or zip code and your DOB and it’ll tell you who your elected representative are including their contact info – call, email, write. Let them know this is not cool and that we are being INCONVENIENCED by this stupid ban. And if you want to research your Representatives or Senators go to the RILIN site.
But if you live in Rhode Island let your elected officials know this isn’t cool to block shipments of wine and spirits to residential addresses.
