Mechiras Chametz

How can one sell liquor and prescription medicines to a non-Jew in a mechiras chametz, if the Illinois law is that the sale of those items requires a special license? The Poskim discuss similar questions regarding other parts of the mechiras chametz (i.e. transfer of real estate or stocks), and rule that the mechirah is valid because they understand that local governments do not restrict small private sales of this sort, especially if they are done for religious purposes.
