Young advocates in New Hampshire are calling for changes to the state’s liquor laws.
Members of “Dover Youth to Youth” say packaging and marketing for alcoholic beverages could make drinks appealing to children.
“We’re concerned that the alcohol companies are making products unreasonably attractive to kids and teens with their design and marketing and advertisements,” said Mia Mozzoni, a member of the program.
A “youth empowerment program” coordinated by the Dover Police Department, Dover Youth to Youth raises awareness about substance abuse issues. Youths who take part in it say many alcoholic drinks have youthful packaging and flavors, that end up targeting kids.
