KSLA News 12 Editorial: August 20- Illegal Sales to Minors
It's hard to believe, but even today- after all the attention paid to illegal underage drinking and a ban on cigarettes sold to minors- that businesses still disregard the law and do it anyway.
Just this summer, Louisiana enforcement officers issued almost 900 citations to businesses. They were cited for either selling alcohol to minors or selling cigarettes to minors. Many of the businesses accused of violating the law are right here in the ArkLaTex- stores in Benton, Gibsland, Natchitoches, Bossier City and Shreveport.
We believe repeat offenders should lose their alcohol and tobacco permits.
I feel so strongly about this that we are including the list of all the stores cited for selling alcohol or cigarettes to minors on our website.
