AGO 1953 No. 3 >  April 3, 1953
LIQUOR CONTROL BOARD - ADVERTISING OF LIQUOR - EXTENT OF POWER OF REGULATION
LIQUOR CONTROL BOARD ‑- ADVERTISING OF LIQUOR ‑- EXTENT OF POWER OF REGULATION. In the absence of specific statutory authority the Washington State Liquor Control Board may not prohibit all advertising of liquor.  The board, however, does have broad powers of regulation and may adopt such rules as will protect the welfare, peace, morals, health and safety of the people.  The board, while not having the power to completely prohibit liquor advertising, does have the power to direct reasonable restrictive regulations to any media or medium of advertising as to time, space, character or location.
