Teen drinking

It's your call

May 13, 1991

Callers to SUNDIAL, by a margin of 2-to-1, do not think adult should allow teen-agers to drink alcohol, even under supervised conditions.

Of 653 who responded to that question, 438, or 67 percent, replied in the negative, and 215 said yes.

The disapproval was slightly lower, 63 percent, on a related question of whether adults should allow teen-agers to rent hotel rooms for parties after school proms. Of 651 callers, 240 &L approved and 411 disapproved.

"It's Your Call" represents a sampling of opinions from certain segments of the community, but it is not balanced demographically, as would be done in a scientific public opinion poll.
