Call on Pabst to stop marketing alcopops to minors

This week, seventeen attorney's general, including Washington State's, asked Pabst Brewing Company to stop marketing Blast by Colt 45 to underage drinkers and to significantly reduce the number of alcohol servings in each can.  The drink, being promoted by rapper Snoop Dogg, comes in a colorful can containing 23.5 ounces, with an alcohol content of 12 percent—more than most cans of beer, CNN reports.

The Marin Institute is collecting signatures on a petition asking Pabst to stop peddling alcopops to urban youth and to stop using Snoop Dogg as their celebrity spokesperson.
