Stone County votes to go wet

STONE COUNTY, MS (WLOX) – Stone County is no longer a dry county. Tuesday, a majority of voters decided in favor of a referendum to bring the county out from under the state’s alcohol prohibition law.

Even with this vote, the issue is complicated. Residents will be allowed to possess beer, wine, and liquor in the county. But sales of adult beverages will only be allowed in the municipalities. In Stone County, that means the city of Wiggins.
