OneAmerica: Vote NO on initiatives 1100 and 1105

Initiatives 1100 and 1105 are bad for our kids. If these initiatives pass, the number of stores selling hard alcohol would skyrocket from 315 to more than 3,300 outlets. Imagine convenience stores and mini-marts on every corner, making liquor available to our kids. It’s not in line with our values or what we teach our children. Our current system of selling alcohol protects our kids by having the best record on preventing sales of liquor to minors. Currently, only 1 in 20 minors is successful in trying to purchase alcohol. Initiatives 1100 and 1105 would change all that and put more hard alcohol in the hands of kids who shouldn’t be drinking. If initiative 1100 and 1105 pass, 1 in 4 minors who try to get alcohol would succeed. On top of that, if these two initiatives pass, state and local budgets will lose approximately $730 million for health care, education and public safety. More alcohol in our  communities and less police, does that sound like a risk we want to take? Protect our families and our communities. Vote NO on initiatives 1100 and 1105.
