A group of Lexington students are speaking out against underage drinking and selling alcohol to minors.

An annual survey revealed that 84 percent of high school seniors in Fayette County admitted it's easy for them to get alcohol.

A study from Kentucky Incentives for Prevention also found that 61 percent of Fayette County seniors have gotten alcohol from friends.

To change those statistics, the Youth Coalition for Alcohol Education is asking businesses to put up signs saying they won't sell alcohol products to minors.

The students also want stores to enforce the law when it comes to checking IDs.
