It's that time of year when there are lots of parties, from after-prom to graduation to cook-outs, and it can lead to underage drinking. Because of those concerns, West Jessamine High School hosted a forum Tuesday night to inform the community of the consequences of underage drinking. In 2011, a social host ordinance was passed by Jessamine County and the City of Nicholasville. It holds adults responsible for underage drinking that occurs in their home or on their property.
At least 20 Kentucky counties and/or cities have similar ordinances.
