AADIF/MICAP has encouraged the Michigan Legislature to enact the 500 foot law (Liquor licenses not be sold to those locating closer than 500 feet from schools and churches). There are exceptions to this rule, but it helps to keep the neighborhoods nicer looking and prevents underage drinking.
AADIF/MICAP helped prevent legislation which would have absolved licensees from liability for serving patrons who had over-imbibed.
AADIF/MICAP supported tightening Michigan’s drunk driving laws by lowering the legal blood alcohol limits first from 0.15% to 0.10%, and then from 0.10% to 0.08%.
AADIF/MICAP fostered a letter campaign to prevent Big Boy, a “family-friendly” restaurant chain from adding beverage alcohol to their menus. They have not pursued that effort further since.
AADIF/MICAP has encouraged Michigan Legislators on several occasions to defeat bills which would extend alcohol sales hours from 2 AM to 4 AM.
AADIF/MICAP has networked with other state and local non-profit organizations to encourage the Michigan Liquor Control Commission (MLCC) to ban the selling of some Alcohol Energy Drinks in Michigan. That ban is on Alcohol Energy Drinks with an alcohol content greater than that of regular beer. The ban remains in place.
