R Street's Cameron Smith on the Free to Brew Podcast Talking About Margarita Pitcher Bans

As covered extensively on, R Street's Cameron Smith led the recent charge in Alabama to reverse the state ABC's crackdown on margarita pitchers at restaurants within the state. The Free to Brew podcast invited Smith on as a guest to discuss the whole episode and how such alcohol reform successes can be duplicated in other states:

Joining the show is Cameron Smith general counsel and vice president of implementation for the R Street Institute, where he oversees how R Street implements and communicates the policy solutions its experts develop. He also handles a wide range of the institute’s legal matters...

Cameron explains how his team was able to, almost overnight, pressure the nannies in Alabama to reverse their decision and let consenting adults voluntarily purchase pitchers of Margaritas once again.

Also how we can replicate the success R Street is having!

On Episode 3 of Here’s How I Think This Works, Eric, Adam, and Cameron discuss alcohol, its origins, its effects, and its many delicious forms. We’ll debate which variety came first, theorize how it might have been discovered, and question how anyone ever drank enough of the original rotgut to realize it could get you drunk. After the break, expert Kevin Kosar will share some wisdom from his new book “Moonshine: A Global History,” give us some guidance on developing your palate, and get us all worked up about illogical liquor laws.
