May 8, 2012 in SPIDA in the News by spida_admin

Our SPIDA youth had the opportunity to be interviewed by Audrina Abigos from Fox News concerning Alcopops. They encouraged the community to sign the pledge to properly classify Alcopops as a distilled spirit rather then a malt beverage. Audrina did a great job covering the issue.  Please encourage coalition members to sign the pledge as well.
