Wondering About 40’s, Alcohol-Related Harm and AB 1694

By Mark Carlson

No Cussing Week, Mardi Gras, Beer Week and St. Patrick’s Day have come and gone, but the shock waves from the outrageous Compton Cookout near UC San Diego continue to reverberate.  I did not have to see the disturbing scene in The Blind Side to know about 40’s.  I’ve picked up my share of empties on church grounds, broken and intact. I speculated that “kegs of Natty” offered to the Cookout partygoers, along with 40’s, referred to Natural Ice.
