Stopping Underage Drinking

Two universities in the state of Ohio are trying to clamp down on underage drinking.

Thanks to a Drug-Free Action Alliance mini-grant, Ohio University has launched a campaign to help show students the consequences of serving alcohol to minors. The campaign, titled "Buzzkill: Host Under-21 and the Party’s Over," has already put five thousand information cards in the hands of students on and off-campus.

The Ohio University Police Department wants students to know if caught, you can face up to six months in jail and a one thousand dollar fine for giving alcohol to minors.
