Wine Consumption by State

I came across this link that details wine consumption by state:

If we assume Maryland will be like any other state under direct ship, then we would expect to see about 50,000 cases coming through the direct ship permit holders. With a $25/bottle retail price, that would equate to about $15,000,000 in additional total revenue and $1,050,000 in additional sales tax for the state. How many cops, teachers and bay restoration ecologists would that fund?
