10 Drunkest States in the U.S.
5th Least Drunk State: Kansas
Dorothy's home state has little tolerance for libations. From 1881 to 1948, all alcohol was prohibited. On-premises sales (bars and restaurants) were a no-go all the way until 1987. Of its 105 counties, 13 are still "dry," and the majority requires businesses to generate 30% of revenue from food sales to keep their liquor license. That's a lot of mozzarella sticks they need to sell.
