USA: Nebraska Mulls Ban on Sponsored Drinking Games

Donnerstag 20. Januar 2011 von htm

To reduce drunk driving, Nebraska’s Liquor Control Commission is considering a ban on drinking games sponsored by suppliers or bars, the Associated Press reported Jan. 10.
The commission has focused on drinking games like beer pong because they „encourage overintoxication, which has a societal risk, a societal harm,“ according to Hobert Rupe, who directs the commission.
„The problem with a lot of these games is if you’re drinking a lot of alcohol rapidly, in a short amount of time, you’re not going to realize you’re at that state until it’s too late,“ he said. Under the proposed regulations, a bar that violated the ban could lose its liquor license. (Source: Join Together, 01/19/11)
