Do You Think The Sale Of ‘Nips’ In Maine Should Be Banned? [POLL]

Governor Paul LePage is calling for a ban on the sales of alcohol “nips” in Maine. That’s right. Soon, you could be saying goodbye to those tiny bottles of fun.

We use them as gifts and drink them at parties. How ever you enjoy a “nip,” you might not be able to much longer in Maine.

I even love how cute the time replica bottles look. And this past Christmas, my Mom gave me a 10 pack of Fireball Nips!

Last month, Gov. LePage vetoed a bill proposing a 5 cent refund tax on nips to help combat pollution in Maine. The Legislation then overrode it, and LePage came back with a suggestion of voting on banning the sale of small liquor bottles in Maine all together. The State Liquor Bureau will vote today on this proposed ban. LePage says that by stopping the sale of nips in Maine all together, it will help to reduce drunk driving.

Guess right and the Dragon will reward you with some kick ass swag. #LateNiteHookup

Now, Fireball Whisky maker Sazerac is defending their popular nips claiming this proposed ban is not fair, and is anti business. According to the Portland Press Herald, 40 % of nips sales in Maine are of Fireball Whiskey. The company says they could reconsider expanding their factory in Lewiston.

What is your favorite liquor nips to enjoy?
