Tippah County to no longer be “dry” starting in 2021, possession to be legalized

Mississippi recently passed a law making it so that all 29 counties in the state that were previously considered “dry” pertaining to the possesssion of alcohol.

Tippah County, which has been dry since 1966, will be included in this.

Mississippi passed House Bill 1087, which reads as follows:

However, from and after January 1, 2021, prohibition is
renounced as to the possession of alcoholic beverages. It shall
thereafter be lawful to possess alcoholic beverages throughout the
state, unless otherwise prohibited in this chapter. Nothing
herein shall be construed to make lawful the possession of
alcoholic beverages with the intent to sell except as aithorized
under this chapter.

It shall be lawful to possess beer and
light wine throughout the state, unless otherwise prohibited by
this chapter. However, nothing herein shall be construed to make
lawful the possession of beer or light wine with the intent to
sell except as authorized by this chapter.

The sale of alcohol in Tippah County can only happen in licensed established that are registered with the state. All of those registered are located in Ripley.
