San Rafael City Council Passes Alcopop-Free Zone™ Resolution

AFZ-Logo-FinEarlier this month, San Rafael City Councilmembers took a bold step toward protecting youth from alcopops when they unanimously passed the country’s first city resolution supporting the creation of an Alcopop-Free Zone™.  The resolution encourages alcohol retailers to voluntarily stop selling the dangerous, youth-oriented, flavored malt beverages known as alcopops. Following a similar resolution of support from the Marin County Board of Supervisors, various San Rafael, Stinson Beach, and Bolinas retailers pulled most alcopop products from their stores. Alcohol Justice and the Youth for Justice group will continue to fight for the elimination of alcopops from Marin County retailers, and alcohol retailers throughout the country.
