Should Massachusetts allow happy hour in bars and restaurants?

Currently, the practice isn't legal in the state. The Boston Globe's Farah Stockman wrote that Boston should try happy hour "if we want to keep talented young people in" the city.

Is that true? Margery Eagan and guest host Sue O'Connell discussed with callers. What do you think? Leave a comment below, or Tweet us.
