NBA allows liquor advertising

First, it was yet another beer-ad soaked football season. Now the NBA has voted to expand its advertising to hard liquor. For those of you who have tried to watch a sporting event on tv with the kids, you already know most commercials wouldn’t fly on most youth programming. Yet there you are on the couch with your impressionable teen watching the good times to be had with scantily clad women and lots and lots of beer.

What, no cigarette ads? Oh, right, they banned those years ago. How? Because lots and lots of people complained.

Here’s your chance to act against the onslaught of alcohol advertising bombarding our youth. Please pass this along.
