Alcopops are Targeted by Local High School Students
CHARLOTTE, N.C. - Some high school students in Charlotte are trying to make it harder for other kids to purchase Alcopops. Alcopops look like energy drinks and taste like soda, but the drinks have upward of 10% alcohol.
As part of their Alcopops Sticker Shock campaign the students are working with gas stations and convenience stores. They are putting bright stickers on the cans to alert people to the dangers. The students campaign is part of a stat-wide effort to have the drinks reclassified as a distilled spirit. In North Carolina distilled spirits can only be sold in ABC stores.
