No booze for DC residents? New Hampshire calls it an oversight, may fix law to avoid confusion

New Hampshire is assuring residents of the nation's capital that they can purchase alcohol in the state despite a law that suggests otherwise. But cigarettes? Maybe not.

The New Hampshire Liquor Commission recently clarified that Washington residents can buy alcohol in New Hampshire even though state law doesn't explicitly include them and instead refers to licenses from "another state" or Canada.

It's unclear how many other laws might unintentionally snub Washington residents, but like the alcohol law, the state's tobacco law says a license from "another state" can be used to show proof of age, without mentioning Washington or U.S. territories. One state senator says he's willing to sponsor a bill to fix the problem.

Out-of-staters are often lured by New Hampshire's tax-free booze, and tourism is its second-largest industry.
