legal status in Massachusetts

do not retain any hope of having a(n alcoholic) drink in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, if you are unwilling to drive a car.
from first-hand knowledge, it is now known that any U.S. citizen visiting the state will be deprived the privilege of imbibing any alcoholic beverages, unless they can prove they will either drive a car or travel internationally, soon enough. else, any visitors have the option of paying the Commonwealth for the privilege of drinking a beer. (q.v. pay me twice fo yo drink, yo)
all hail these gods of (ir-)rationality and (il-)logic.
