Great news!
I can now use Bitcoin to drink beers at the bar here at my hometown California.
It's been hot and getting close to summer and it's great that people who hold Bitcoin wallet can pay in Bitcoin rather than carrying cash or credit card soon.  Grin

"The California Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control (ABC) has given the green-light for bars and other alcohol-serving establishments to accept bitcoin as a form of payment."

this is good for californians.

but thinking of the bigger picture, this is also good for people in different states, as it shows that different states CAN have their laws changed or policies approved independently from national governments.

the example is that illinois banned alcohol purchases and california approves it. stuff like this will will in the future cause economic impacts on each state depending on their policies.

EG crypto businesses will not want to set up business in illinois if their viewed as non bitcoin friendly, and more businesses will set up in new york and california instead.

So California beats Ohio to it. Buying beer for Bitcoin was just banned a few hours ago in Ohio.

Ohio Public Safety Department Rules Bitcoin Beer Purchase Banned

https://coinreport.net/ohio-beer-bitcoin-ban

Quote
Cleveland Heights’ Bitcoin Boulevard is home to a strip of businesses that look to create a small bitcoin sustained business district. One Ohio business owner, Brian Benchmark, decided to join other locals in turning his pub into a bitcoin accepting business. Unsure if his pub, the BottleHouse Brewing Co., could accept bitcoin or not, Benchmark asked the Ohio Department of Public Safety for a ruling on the matter.
