CANDLE, which stands for Community Awareness Network for a Drug-Free Life and Environment, is urging Rockland County liquor retailers to ask for two forms of identification to make it more difficult for underage customers to drink. The group says getting one phony I.D. is fairly easy, but getting a second form is difficult.
“This program is intended to make it just a little bit more difficult for underage drinkers to purchase alcohol products,” said Joanne Goodman, CANDLE’s executive director. “Drinking is up. Alcohol is the drug of choice among young people. It’s all over.”
