Drug, Alcohol, and Tobacco Use and Abuse
The Boy Scouts of America prohibits the use of alcoholic beverages and
controlled substances at encampments or activities on property owned and/or
operated by the Boy Scouts of America, or at any activity involving participation
of youth members.
Adult leaders should support the attitude that young adults are better off
without tobacco and may not allow the use of tobacco products at any BSA
activity involving youth participants.
All Scouting functions, meetings, and activities should be conducted on a
smoke-free basis, with smoking areas located away from all participants.
