Why do some states like Kansas, Oklahoma and Colorado have 3.2 percent beer?!

Question: Why do some states like Kansas, Oklahoma and Colorado have 3!.2 percent beer!?
Dont tell me bible belt either, there has got to be a better explanation than that!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

In Oklahoma 3!.2 beer was originally defined by our constitution as "non-intoxicating" and was a way to get around prohibition, which didn't end here until 1957!. Even after the end of prohibition the state would only allow "strong beer" to be sold at room temperature in liquor stores, a situation that exists to this day!. And I'm sorry, but the Bible Belt mentality has a lot to do with keeping things this way!. The anti-alcohol evangelical vote is over 50% in Oklahoma and will shoot down any attempt or any politician that would make it easier for Oklahomans to consume more alcohol!. Heck, we only approved the right for liquor stores to be open on election days two years ago and that barely passed with 53% of the vote!. Www@FoodAQ@Com

3!.2 beer was for the 18 year old's in the old days, before the Fed made booze for younger G!. I!.'s illegal until 21 years old

(Old enough to die for the U!.S!., but not old enough to enjoy a high point beer)

Now 3!.2 it is a product sold in Grocery stores, and until recently was the only 'by the bottle booze' available legally on Sunday!. that changed a few months ago!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

I was not aware that anybody in America knew what real beer was anyway!. 3!.2% sounds like milkwater better send them a few cases of Newcastle Brown Www@FoodAQ@Com
