Underage Drinking & the Law

What parents need to know now about the new Social Host Laws

Social Host Ordinance in Streamboat Springs nets only small fish.

Kudos to the editorial staff of Steamboat Today who took another look at the effects of the Social Host Law passed in Steamboat Springs Colorado in 2009. They discovered that a law designed to catch parents who permitted minors to drink in their homes instead netted only 13 individuals all under the age of 21. That’s surprising considering that Steamboat Springs’ police captain Joel Rae has a zero tolerance policy. We prefer Routt County Sheriff Gary Wall’s approach who believes the solution to underage drinking is “education and better parenting”.
