WSGW OnLine Poll: 17-Year-Olds Serving Alcohol (results)

Group Of Young Friends Meeting For Drinks And Food Making A Toast In Restaurant

(June 15 – 22)

The legislature has passed a bill and Governor Whitmer has signed it into law allowing 17-year-olds to serve alcohol at restaurants or bars in Michigan.

17-year-olds will only be able to serve at an on-premise location, and a person at least 18 or older must be present, and an alcohol server training course must be completed.

Maine is the only state that allows 17-year-olds to serve.

POLL QUESTION: Do you think Michigan should allow 17-year-olds to serve alcohol within the contraints of the new law?
Yes – 28%
No – 68%
I’m Not Sure – 4%
