The commissioner may by rule regulate the advertising of alcoholic beverages. Rules must be adopted under chapter 14.
No rule may be construed as prohibiting the advertising of wines by off-sale licensees or municipal liquor stores by means of catalogs distributed by direct mail listing not less than 25 varieties of wine and the price of each.
No rule may prohibit the advertising of intoxicating liquor prices by an off-sale licensee in a newspaper of general circulation published in an adjoining state if it is the primary newspaper of general circulation in the licensee's area.
No manufacturer, wholesaler, or retailer of alcoholic beverages, whether holding a license in Minnesota or not, may conduct, sponsor, or contribute financially to events or activities that are held on the campuses or other property of a postsecondary institution of learning, and involve the consumption or sale of alcoholic beverages. This subdivision does not affect on-campus, licensed retailers of alcoholic beverages.
