I feel I should comment on the letter to the editor from Michael E. Tscheekar (Jan. 6) pointing out that alcoholic beverages brought into the country on common carrier are only subject to federal regulation. His contention is correct, as far as it goes. But Customs enforces state as well as federal alcoholic beverage control laws. In California, where a vast majority of people entering the country are at land border ports and not traveling by common carrier, the state law applies.
