Sell alcohol ‘responsibly’
A WELL-KNOWN ADVOCATE against alcoholism and drug use is condemning people who knowingly sell alcoholic beverages to minors.
Not only that, but president of the National Committee for the Prevention of Alcoholism and Drug Dependency (NCPADD), Victor Roach, castigated people and establishments who “keep drinks coming” to visibly inebriated people.
Roach told the DAILY NATION in an interview he was especially concerned that many more of these cases would be evident this Crop Over season, resulting in possible detriment to the same people or worst, innocent bystanders.
He maintained that a bartender’s responsibility entailed more than just serving. He therefore called for them and others who sell hard liquor to be trained on how to identify when a person had too much, and to understand the obligations they had to patrons. (SDB Media)
