When you walk into a liquor store, it's easy to look at labels and think some of them are targeting teens and not just legal adults. With catchy logos, bright colors and fruity flavors, it seems teenagers are being targeted more than ever.
That's why teenagers in Early County are teaming up with Early Choices to place warning stickers on beer, wine and liquor labels in stores.
Coordinators at early choices say it's up to adults to stand between teens and alcohol.
"If you buy for teens you can face up to a year in jail- and a thousand dollar fine. It's not worth it," says Early Choices coordinator Natalie Smith.
Research has shown that teens who begin drinking early are more likely to become alcoholics later in life.
