Q:

What are the fines for transporting alcohol across state lines?

A:

The fines for transporting alcohol across state lines varies by state. Every state implemented specific laws dealing with alcohol transportation, with the most restrictive laws dating back to the 1930s after Prohibition ended.

Some states, such as California, allow residents to transport alcohol for personal use over state lines without penalties.

Other states have stringent laws on the transport of alcohol, even for personal use. Transporting alcohol over the state line makes the owner subject to fines, and in some cases, jail. Pennsylvania can jail offenders for 90 days for transporting an alcoholic beverage into the state. In Tennessee, any amount under 3 gallons is a misdemeanor with a fine of $500 and larger amounts are prosecuted as a felony, as of 2014.
