Lufkin Drug-Free All Stars start 'Project Sticker Shock' to warn against underage drinking

LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) - The Drug-Free All Stars have teamed up with members of The Coalition in "Project Sticker Shock" to reach adults who might purchase alcohol legally to provide to minors. 

Spring break, prom, and graduation are all around the corner,  so All Stars and adult volunteers will work together to place neon orange stickers on multi-packs of liquor.  The stickers will remind adults of the consequences of providing liquor to minors. 

District Judge Bob Inselmann spoke at the press conference this morning at Brookshire Brothers on N. Timberland Street. 

He listed penalties of giving liquor to children which included fines, jail time, and revocation of licenses.  

Several stores are participating in the project including Brookshire Brothers, La Michoacana Meat Market, Hernandez, and several Polk's Pick it Up locations.  

"If adults were to provide alcohol to minors such as my friends, that can be extremely unsafe. I don't want my friends going out and participating in events that involve alcohol and other dangerous drugs," said Alexis Foster, a Drug-free All Star member. 

The efforts are a partnership between youth, retailers, concerned parents, and law enforcement.
