Mariah’s Challenge: Fighting teen drinking

“It’s not just happening in Butte or Montana. It’s a nationwide crisis. Underage drinking is higher than it has ever been. Drinking and driving is not just a teen problem – it affects every age group.

Underage drinking is a community problem and must be a community-wide solution. Retailers and tavern owners must commit not to sell to anyone under 21, members of the law enforcement profession must enforce existing laws and penalties, and the adults of the community must set a good example both at home and in public.”

“Accepting the Challenge Is Simple

  • If you are under 21, do not drink and never get in a car with somebody who has been drinking.
  • If you are over 21, do not drink and drive, and be a good role model for our children.
  • If you sell alcohol, check IDs, train your employees to obey the law, and keep alcohol out of the hands of our children.
  • If you are a part of our justice system, enforce our laws and keep our children safe.”
