NH #5 among states profiting most from 'sin taxes'
Relative to some of the other sin-related sources of income, taxes on alcohol are not a big source of revenue.

In others, it can even mean warehousing and selling the liquor directly to consumers. In New Hampshire, state-controlled liquor sales accounted for 1% of the state’s income.
