Some Chiloquin High School students are taking a different approach at reducing underage drinking.
Student Gary Frost says it’s easier than you’d think for minors to buy alcohol. “It’s very easy. There are a lot of people around here who are very willing to buy alcohol for minors, as long as they get money.”
Frost explains the ‘Think Twice’ program: “We put stickers on bottles of alcohol so that when people buy them, they think twice about giving them to minors.”
The stickers read: ‘Buying alcohol for minors is illegal. Think twice. Underage drinking can be dangerous. It’s a class ‘A’ misdemeanor, with up to 364 days in jail and $6250 in fines. Be the influence they need.’
The stickers, and banners were placed at the Crater Lake Junction Travel Center, Clyde’s Market, and the Family Food Center.
