I was planning to mail a bottle of wine to my friend in California, like I had mentioned earlier. So I go to Beltway Fine Wine & Spirits, a massive beer, liquor and (mostly) wine store in Towson to ask how I might best do this, so the bottle doesn't break or anything. They tell me it's illegal! I could try it, but it's on me if I do get caught. Man, I had no idea!
