About the Law

Who is a Social Host?

Oklahoma’s Social Host law puts a shared responsibility for underage drinking on the person providing the location for the gathering. Adults or minors can be cited and fined under the Social Host law.

It’s the Law

Oklahoma’s Social Host law means it’s up to you to make sure kids don’t drink in your home or on your property. The law is clear: If kids under age 21 are drinking alcohol at a gathering, and you’re providing the location for that gathering, you’re responsible — whether you’re an adult or a minor, and whether you rent, own, or simply provide the location. Fines for the first offense are up to $500.
