Drug-Free All Stars shock alcohol buyers with Sticker Shock campaign

LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) - The Coalition's Drug-Free All Star members kicked off their project sticker shock Monday morning at the Gaslight location of Brookshire Brothers.

The project is a youth-led public awareness campaign to get adults to change their attitudes about buying and providing alcohol to underage kids. Members of the community, including Angelina County Sheriff Greg Sanches, and Judge Bob Inselmann, attended the press conference on Monday to help spread the message.

Kids got to stick fluorescent orange and black stickers and decals on multi-packs of alcohol and glass refrigerator doors for everyone to see.

"and what's that doing is reminding adults that can legally purchase that it is against the law. There are fines, there are penalties for people who do this and it's really a poor decision to supply to minors because once they supply alcohol they have no control of what's happened," said Phil Metzinger, the Vice President of Beverage and Tobacco Operations for Brookshire Brothers.

The Drug-Free All Stars will be putting the stickers on alcohol at all Brookshire Brother locations, including Polk Gas Stations.
