It has been recently held by the Federal courts, sitting in West. Virginia Districts, that interstate transportation of intoxicants by the owner for personal use is not interstate commerce, and, therefore, not prohibited by the so-called "Bone-Dry" Law. But inasmuch as there are at least two prior decisions squarely contra, and apparently none in accord, it would seem proper, in view of the far-reaching effect of these recent decisions, to examine the soundness of their conclusions.
