Underage Drinking & the Law

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

Good news from Craig Colorado

We’re happy to hear that underage drinking in Craig has dropped. We’ve seen a consistent decline across the nation even though Social Host Laws aren’t ubiquitous, yet. Still, it’s troubling that headlines applaud the Social Host Ordinance while many experts don’t. There was community opposition when it was proposed, according to Matt Beckett, Moffat County director of the Grand Futures Prevention Coalition, who’s quoted saying, “A lot of it had to do with giving police officers too much power over personal privacy.” Beckett also credits many other community efforts for helping reduce underage drinking in Craig.
