What’s at issue here is narrower: how many states allow underage imbibing at bars (and restaurants) at any age.
"Wisconsin needs to send a strong message that 21 means 21," Maureen Busalacchi, executive director of Health First Wisconsin, said in a news release.
"Wisconsin is the only state that allows parents or guardians to purchase alcohol for their children – regardless of whether that child is seven or 20 years old – at bars and restaurants." Health First wants to eliminate the exception, saying the law fuels an unsafe drinking culture and that research shows impaired brain development associated with early-age drinking.
Wisconsin’s ranking as the nation’s top binge-drinking state was confirmed in a 2012 study by the U. That’s the gist of a claim by Health First Wisconsin, a group that lobbies to prevent alcohol abuse and curb tobacco use. 12, 2012 the organization, (formerly known as Smoke Free Wisconsin) decried what it called Wisconsin’s "extreme alcohol culture" after a question on Reddit, the social news website, led to online debate over "extreme legal loopholes." One of the "loopholes" cited prominently was a Wisconsin liquor law that creates an exception to the 21 drinking age.
But is the state the most permissive in America on allowing minors to imbibe in a public establishment?
Wisconsin law does say that persons under 21 can be sold alcohol and drink it if they are with their parents, guardians or spouses of legal drinking age, the state Department of Revenue website says.
State law allows that at bars as well as restaurants with liquor licenses.
Does Wisconsin really stand alone by allowing children of any age to drink in taverns and eateries under such supervision?The evidence Asked for backup, the group pointed us to state and national research on state-by-state alcohol-control laws, which we reviewed along with other materials in order to compare states, starting with Wisconsin.
