No Booze Ads For Students

WRIC is reporting on a ruling by the Virginia Supreme Court that stems from a 2006 lawsuit by Virginia Tech and the University of Virginia student newspapers. The papers claimed that a regulation against alcohol ads in student publications didn't apply to them since at least half their readers are 21 years of age or older. The court ruled that the restrictions did apply to the publications.

Of course, this a sure to be good news to the nanny-state crowd. After all, we know that just the sight of a beer ad will induce an underage student into an alcohol-induced rage. Whew, what a relief that we avoided that ugly scene.
