The National Association of Attorneys General sent letters to several online retailers -- including Craigslist, eBay, and Facebook -- asking them to take steps to prevent the illegal sales of alcohol online.  

In a letter signed by 46 attorneys general, the group asked for the companies to:

  • Review the current content posted on their websites and remove postings for the illegal sale of alcohol products; and
  • Develop and deploy programming to prevent and block users from from posting illegal listings for illegal alcohol sales. 

NAAG also invited the companies to establish a working group to discuss and establish “realistic and effective protocols for internet platforms and content providers related to illegal and unlicensed alcohol sales via digital platforms.”
