Will home delivery of alcoholic drinks increase dangerous drinking trends? Will it really save the restaurants?

Recognizing that alcohol is a high profit product, many states have temporarily allowed drinks-to-go.  There were conditions, such as only one or two drinks in a sealed container along with a meal.  According to the Distilled Spirits Council, over 30 states allowed some type of “alcohol to-go”.
