This needs to be a law?

You wont be able to get this at your favorite bar, which shouldnt bother you at all.

I am so confused by this story:

The Colorado Liquor Enforcement Division has issued new regulations that seek to crack down on the sale of low-strength beer in restaurants and liquor stores. The crackdown could prevent bars from serving beers such as Michelob Ultra, Heineken Light and and Corona Light.

As the writer goes on to point out, there is already a law in Colorado that forbids bars and restaurants from selling "low-strength" beers, beers with an alcohol content less than 4 percent. But it's a law that is rarely enforced, because, well, why would you even need to?

And now thanks to the magical powers of our legislators, starting Jan. 1 liquor stores and bars will have to totally stop selling this watered down idea of beer (which you will still be able to buy at grocery stores).

I guess there just aren't enough people driving around hammered off the "high-strength" beers that they downed at the local pub.
