AdWords to Permit the Advertisement of Hard Alcohol

Des Wodkas reine Seele......

Just in time for Depression 2009! Google’s AdWords will allow advertisers to sell their hard alcohol and liqueurs in the U.S.

For example, under the hard alcohol and liqueurs policy, you might market to individuals searching for helpful and relevant alcohol-related information by promoting holiday cocktail ideas or the caloric content of popular spiked beverages. Under the beer policy, you might state a specific sales promotion for a great winter ale.

Still no word on the gambling advertising ban. I do have to admit – as an American – that some of the Puritan ideals that still permeate the policies and laws of this nation are silly. I also don’t drink alcohol nor do I gamble, so I could give a care either way.
