What is Social Hosting? Many folks are unfamiliar with terms in the prevention field, so defining some of those terms may help with understanding what it is that we are trying to do. One term is "Social Hosting". Social Hosting means adults providing underage (under the age of 21) teens with alcohol. This could happen at someone's own home or at a party in the ll- ano somewhere. Either way, it is illegal. Why would there be a law against Social Hosting? Because when teens drink, they are more likely to develop an addiction than if they wait until they are an adult. Also, when teens drink, they are more likely to make foolish choices while they are drinking, such as choosing to have unpro- tected sex, drink and drive, or try another harmful drug. Please don't be a party to teenage drink- ing. It may hurt the teens involved and it is against the law! Plan a celebration for your graduate without alcohol - it will be more fun and also worry free!
