Bottle battle: Boston talks of banning tiny bottles of booze


Associated Press

BOSTON (AP) — A Boston city councilor has proposed barring city liquor stores from selling the single-serve bottles that hold 100 milliliters or less of booze – both as a way to address alcohol abuse and excessive litter. Councilor Ricardo Arroyo says several other Massachusetts communities have banned the sale of the tiny bottles and the impact on public health and the environment has been tangible. But the proposed ban on minis is receiving pushback from the liquor industry. The Massachusetts Package Store Association says a ban would hurt locally owned businesses financially without addressing the underlying problems of litter and alcohol abuse.
