Underage Drinking Comes With Huge Consequences at Country Jam
It's always appreciated when our friends in law enforcement give us reminders, we know they don't want to write tickets or arrest people. But when laws are broken there are consequences to those actions and this year at Colorado Country Jam is not the time to try drinking alcohol if you are under the age of 21.
I've been to dozens of concerts and shows while working for radio stations and there hasn't ever been an event where I wished I had more to drink. If you're underage this is not the event to try and sneak a sip of alcohol. If you think a simple Minor in Possession of Alcohol charge from our law enforcement isn't that bad, there are lots of other consequences that will come from breaking the law.
There Will Be Added Plain Clothes Officers at County Jam Looking for Underage Drinking
Our friends at the Mesa County Sheriff's Office have been vocal about letting us know that they are adding extra officers to patrol campgrounds and throughout the venue to make sure no underage drinking is taking place. Officers will be equipped with the latest technology to spot fake IDs as well. If you try to drink underage, you will be caught.
What Happens If Your Caught Drinking Underage at Country Jam
First, you will be receiving a ticket and court date for a minor in possession of alcohol. Also, your Country Jam wristband is automatically cut off your wrist, this means you will not be allowed to even enter the campgrounds. Plus, you will probably have to call your parents to pick you up. It's just not worth it.
If you're under 21 and going to Country Jam the best advice I have for you is to be your friends Designated Driver and charge them all a small fee. Hopefully, you make some money and see some great country music.
