Campaign aims to curb underage drinking
Trying to keep underage people from buying alcohol is a constant battle. State liquor control agents have spent the last couple years running sting operations designed to encourage store owners to check identification of people who buy alcohol. Hundreds of businesses have been fined. Now store owners and liquor companies have launced a new campaign to try to curb underage drinking.
The campaign features support services for liquor retailers as well as a public service annoucement which will air on local television stations.
