The Florida bottle size law mentioned in the list was repealed about 15 or 20 years ago.  Now we can have any bottle between zero and 32 ounces and anything over a gallon. 
It was a real pain not to be able to get bombers or metric sized bottles back then.  I understand that the original restrictive legislation was passed in the late 1950's to spite Miller and their 7 ounce bottles because they chose not to open a brewery in Florida and instead chose Georgia.
