Manatee cracks down on house parties

Bradenton, Florida -- Rick Scott recently signed HB 105, a law that is designed to curb underaged drinking at house parties. The Manatee County Substance Abuse Coalition and local law enforcement are both speaking out in support of the bill.

The law, which goes into effect Friday, July 1, increases penalties for a person in control of a home who knowingly allows a minor to possess or consume alcohol or drugs at an open house party.

For more information on the ongoing prevention efforts of the Manatee County Substance Abuse Coalition to keep alcohol and drugs out of the hands of our youth, call Sharon Kramer (941) 932-5620.
