im going to visit family in gerorgia in a few weeks and was hoping to buy a few of gallons of moonshine from my grandfather and drive it back to san diego but im not sure if i can transport it without a permit. some information i look up online says its ok but other sources says i cant and im not sure how to tell which ones are credible.
The general rule is that if you are transporting a reasonable consumable amount, and the duties and tariffs have been paid in the state of origin, it's legal. Unfortunately, your plan fails both of those tests. At the least, you will be stopped at the California state line and you must declare that you are transporting a few gallons of alcohol. I can't guarantee that they'll let you through. You don't want to know the consequences if you fail to declare and they find it anyway.
