TABC PSA Underage Drinking and Social Hosting - "It's Just Easier"

"It's Just Easier" is a PSA about Jack, a 17 year-old recently graduated high-school senior, his parents Dan and Cindy, and his friends. Jack and his friends want to attend an underage drinking party for graduation that is 20 miles out of town, and Dan and Cindy are reluctant to allow Jack to go. They think Jack will lose his friends or obtain alcohol someplace else if they say no. They eventually agree to allow Jack to invite a few friends over and offer to provide the beer. Even with the best-laid plans and house rules, Dan and Cindy find out that it is against the law to provide alcohol to minors even with a parent's permission. They also learn that encouraging underage drinking in your home or on your property can have serious risks. "It's Just Easier" shows parents and other adults how underage drinking and intoxication can have far-reaching consequences that impact others, whether or not they choose to consume alcohol.
