Believe it or not, this law is actually enforced. In a recent post over at Atheist Revolution, I describe how I saw "possession of beer/wine in a dry county" listed among the charges on which someone was recently arrested not too far from where I live.
Preventing anyone in our state from buying alcoholic beverages on Sundays or prohibiting residents of "dry counties" from buying beer without having to drive a distance is not enough for the Southern Baptists who run our state. Apparently, it is also a criminal offense merely to possess beer or wine in a dry county.
Evidently, news that prohibition was repealed over 75 years ago has not yet reached Mississippi. This law needs to change.
