I heard it's technically illegal to have an alcoholic beverage that is not in the same state it was sold in, in public. Does this mean
- if a single can of beer is missing from a six pack it is illegal?
- if a bottle of hard liquor has been opened and resealed, it is illegal?
Also what is meant by "public" in this context? For example if I'm walking down the street with a two six of vodka in my backpack that I had already drank from, would that be illegal? Does it matter if it's concealed?
