10 Drunkest States in the U.S.
Equal 7th Least Drunk State: Alabama
Tied with Georgia for seventh place, the Heart of Dixie has strong ties to its prohibition past. Of Alabama's 67 counties, 17% prohibit the sale of alcohol (possession and consumption are in the clear though). According to state laws, municipalities with a population of more than 1,000 can appeal or repeal its "wet" or "dry" status by petition or election. Many counties have transitioned to "wet" because of the economic benefits of an alcohol tax.
