The Cato Institute said the following about Indiana:
"Indiana has more personal freedom than most other conservative states. It was forced to legalize same-sex marriage in 2014 but never had an oppressive super-DOMA. Gun rights are fairly secure, especially for concealed carry, but the state has a stricter-than-federal minimum age for possession, dealer licensing ... Cannabis freedom is virtually nonexistent, and alcohol freedom is only a bit better than average, as the state bans offsite, direct-to-consumer wine shipments and off-premises Sunday sales."
The three things the Cato Institute suggested Indiana do to improve its standing are reduce debt and income taxes, allow independent nurse practitioner practice and legalize happy hours, direct wine shipments and Sunday alcohol sales.
