    Drug Free Adams County hosted a town hall meeting Wednesday afternoon to discuss the affects underage drinking has on Adams County’s youth.
    Executive Director Kelly Sickafoose introduced three key speakers for the meeting: State Rep. Matt Lehman, Adams County Superior Court Judge Patrick R. Miller and Adams County sheriff’s deputy and Adams Central School Resource Officer Charlie Cook. Other participants were students and members of the Drug Free organization.
    Lehman spoke about the Indiana Life Line Law. The law, he said, provides immunity for the crimes of public intoxication, minor possession, minor consumption and minor transport to any person who reveals themselves to law enforcement while seeking medical assistance for a person suffering from an alcohol related health emergency.
