OLCC still refuses to import any of the traditional liquors of a fifth of the world's population. There are many Oregonians who would enjoy the sorghum distillates called "bai jiu" in China. For now, it takes a trip to California or Vancouver BC to buy a bottle of Mao Tai, Wu Liang Ye or the delightfully incendiary Hong Xing Er Guo Tou Jiu. Do we really need this restrictive blue-law holdover from the start of the past century? End the OLCC.
