Ole Miss Drinking
Ole MissStudents at the University of Mississippi could see a change in the way local Oxford businesses handle alcohol if new ordinances are passed.

City officials hope to enact an ordinance which would hold Oxford businesses responsible to selling alcohol to underage drinkers.

If the ordinance passes, businesses found to be first time violators could have their liquor licenses suspended for two weeks and face a year of probation. A second offense would mean a three-week suspension and another year of probation and a third could cause a liquor license to be revoked for a minimum of two years.
