Prefer that to the rampant drug abuse in other parts of the country. Although there is far to much drug activity right here! If law enforcement put as much effort into drug arrests as they do into their DUI inforcement we'd all be better off!

I agree with animal, but it seems here lately that the justice system is broken and people are getting off for serious crimes regarding both alcohol and/or drugs.

"getting off for serious crimes due to alcohol and drugs"????? Nobody should go to prison for either one of those unless it's harsh drugs such as meth.

And of course this is the case, all the hard workers are here in ND making all the money. Of course there is going to be more alcohol sales, just like there is more food sales, more fuel sales, the movie theater seems to be pretty pack every weekend. i'm sure we get more shipments of much more than just alcohol due to our economy here. When people have money, they tend to buy stuff, that's how this country works and it's a good thing.

Before anyone gets into a panic, think about this poll for a moment...

ND is in the midst of a oil boom that has brought many men to an area of the state where, it could be argued, there's nothing better to do than drink. It's similar to how smoking becomes so popular in the military.

Is it really that big a mystery as to how ND leads the country in per capita beer shipments?

This survey is for beer. I'm guessing North Dakota is not number one for Wine, or Vodka, etc... it is for just one alcoholic beverage. So don't push the panic button just yet.

and when it all boils down to it, who really cares. Beer is legal if you are 21 years of age. Dont like beer don't drink it. Those that clicked "greatly" I'm really curious to know what exactly concerns you???

who says cops are not enforcing the DUI law???? when is the last time you heard about someone getting off scott free from a dui. The days of an officer pulling you over and saying, "hey son, just go ahead and walk the rest of the way" are over. That does not happen anymore and law enforcement take DUI's very seriously when they catch someone. Now they can't just go and pull people over without a reason, so of course drunk driver are still going to be on the road, but some of you need not condemn law enforcement claiming they don't enforce the law, they do.

Who else would you expect guzzles down the most beer? The entire state is fueled by alcohol, meth and racism.

This state also has one of the highest suicide rates for middle aged men.

Figure it out folks. The good times are killing you.

"I'm referring to the state of North Dakota."

So in namexxx's mind, each and every resident of North Dakota makes up what he calls "a bunch of drunks."

I guess I'll call the entire Democrat Party a bunch of philanderers, because some have been guilty of the practice.

A broad brush it is we wield, when we wish to persuade the field...

These arguments are incoherent nonsense -- proving, once again, that you're a bunch of drunks.

That's the reality.

Don't like that reality? Stop guzzling beer.
