Town Hall Meetings on Underage Drinking

Posted: Updated:

YAKIMA, Wash. --  Cities through out the state have been holding town hall meetings to discuss underage drinking in their community.

The meetings are part of the "Start Talking Now" campaign. According to the Washington Coalition for Underage Drinking, many parents do not know how to communicate with their children about drinking.
