Georgia may see more alcohol in college stadiums

College is the place that many people try things for the first time. Many graduates wax nostalgic about first road trips, first dates and first work successes while living or studying on campus. Although it is not part of a healthy college experience, alcohol can be part of a lot of firsts. For some students, alcohol is involved in their first experiences with the criminal justice system.

Institutions do what they can to control access to alcohol by teenagers or other underage people. Police in Atlanta, Savannah and Athens often execute operations to discover alcohol vendors who do not check identification or willfully sell booze to people below the age of 21.

Universities, including the one in Athens, may have to contend with some new ways for underage people to get their hands on beer, wine or liquor. The Southeastern Conference (SEC) has lifted a 30-year ban on their member colleges selling alcoholic beverages in their stadiums. Universities in 11 states, including Georgia, will now have to decide on their own how they will handle this new privilege.

Some instances of introducing alcohol sales in stadiums show a decline in alcohol-related incidents as well as high revenue for the organizations. However, they will also have to ensure that underage drinkers are not enabled by these opportunities.

People facing underage alcohol possession charges always have the right to legal counsel in their own defense, from the moment of arrest to any appearances in court. An attorney can help represent a person's interests in negotiations with prosecutors and any other times during dealings with the law.
