Changing the Drinking Culture

A study group wants to change the way alcohol is perceived and consumed in Wisconsin. The group came up with 49 recommendations for state and local governments, communities, employers and educators. Alcohol Culture and Environment Workgroup’s suggestions include adding sobriety checkpoints throughout the community, limiting alcohol advertising in the various municipalities, changing the law that allows parents to buy their children alcohol and adopting ordinances that ban competitions and games as well as the use of beer bongs and similar devices in licensed establishments as these encourage swift consumption of alcohol. The workgroup is comprised of public policy experts, attorneys, elected officials, law enforcement, local leaders, educators and others.
