Jackson County Liquor Law

Business leaders in Jackson County, Fla., are planning a new campaign to let bars and restaurants sell liquor by the glass.

The Jackson County Economic Development Alliance will kick off its campaign, "Jackson Yes" on Tuesday.

They'll have 120 days to collect 7,000 signatures to get the issue placed on next year's ballot.

The Chamber of Commerce is hosting a special event kickoff Tuesday at the Russ House.

    Some people like to have a drink before dinner. I don't see a problem with that. It's been going on in other counties and states for years with no major problems. We need to move forward with our economic development in Jackson County. Let's move out of the dark ages. Money is NOT the root of all evil. The LOVE of money is the root of all evil. I personally don't see a problem here. Let's move Forward. Why send all that revenue out of our County?

    Does Jackson County really need people out driving around drunk.Drinking liquor at lunch, will make a person tipsy and yall know it. I guess the law will have their hands full catching people afer they've ate.More revenue for the county. Lot more D.U.I.'s . More people having to pay fines and restitution to the county.
