Clark County residents are going to be experiencing sticker shock on Tuesday, Aug. 26 when they try to buy alcohol. But this sticker shock won't be because of high prices. Instead, the shock is being delivered by a group of local youths who are participating in the Sticker Shock campaign, a concept developed by M.A.D.D. to help curb underage drinking.
On Tuesday, local Boy Scouts and the youth groups will be escorted by the Winchester Police Department and the Clark County Sheriff's Department to liquor stores and convenience stores in Winchester to warn adults about the consequences of buying alcohol for minors. Yellow stickers detailing the legal ramifications of providing alcohol to minors will be placed on multi-packs of beer and wine coolers.
The project is being coordinated locally by the Clark County Alcohol Coalition and the Clark County Agency for Substance Abuse Policy. Approximately 2,000 stickers will be distributed by the teens.
