Not Just a Minor Problem
Underage drinking is not just a minor problem. It affects all of us. That is why the State has passed a Social Host Law. A social host is someone who knowingly allows an underage person to consume alcohol illegally on their property. Iowa passed a law in 2014 that penalizes social hosts with a criminal offense and fines of up to $330 with court costs.
This campaign informs the public about that law: what it is; why it's important; and how to work with this law to prevent underage drinking.
Hosting minors at your next get together may be a violation of Iowa's Social Host Law and can result in fines and criminal penalties. Create awareness of the state Social Host Law.
