Maybe You Should Ignore That Tap On Your Shoulder

Shoulder Tapping Business

Here's a little alcohol-buying factoid: the penalty in Oregon for buying beer for someone who's underage can be as much as a year in jail and $6,000-plus in fines

That tidbit comes courtesy of the drug and alcohol awareness Oregon Partnership nonprofit along with the Oregon Liquor Control Commission. The two groups are teaming up on a summer campaign starting Tuesday, July 7 to reduce the practice of adults buying alcohol for underage drinkers who hover outside convenience stores looking for a booze buyer — a.k.a. "shoulder tapping."

And if you need one more factoid to fascinate your friends, here you go: 29.3% of Oregonians ages 12-20 reported having taken a drink in the past month compared to 30.5% in the same age group for Washington and 25.8% for California.
