Detroit News comes out against Michigan's policy on Interstate Wine

Michigan Wasting Effort Defending Outdated Wine Law: Prohibition era law, already declared unconstitutional, forbids interstate shipping of wine
reads the headline in the Detroit News editorial, and they're right. Glad to see both major Detroit papers standing against this ban and the AG's pursuit of an appeal to the Supreme court. The paper even shot down the "it's for the children" argument in favor of the current ban.

Hopefully the AG takes heed and drops the suit, or the Supreme Court backs the 6th and other Circuit court decisions that have held such bans to be violations of the commerce clause.
