A new study of Internet sales of alcohol finds more and more young people are buying alcohol online and by-passing the age checks that are conducted in bars or liquor stores. Mike Schlar with the Missouri Division of Alcohol and Tobacco Control says the U.S. Supreme Court recently ruled in favor of Internet alcohol sales – despite objections from several states. Schlar points out Missouri law requires that those delivering alcohol only do so to people 21 years of age or older and to obtain signatures from those people. He says that while efforts are being made to keep minors away from alcohol, Internet booze sales would not be considered a major problem because there are easier ways for minors to obtain alcohol.
