An analysis of county liquor board reports and information from the Maryland Comptroller's Office found that fewer than 10 percent of businesses that sold alcohol to minors have had their liquor licenses suspended or revoked. Conversely, the analysis also found that less than 9 percent of the businesses that violated the state's liquor laws were forced to close temporarily. The investigation goes on to show that the system of penalties was uneven in most situations with some businesses receiving fines from $100 to $5,000, while others were simply handed a letter of warning or a reprimand. Youth advocates and other groups in Maryland believe the problem stems from a lack of uniform liquor laws from county to county.
