The liquor-by-the-drink fight continues in Pigeon Forge.

Supporters say taxes from liquor sales would generate a lot of money for the city's schools and benefit students.

An opposing group, Concerned Churches and Citizens of Pigeon Forge says that's not true. They held their latest meeting Thursday.

"The very people they're saying is gonna benefit is the kids that's going to be hurt the most. We know from statistics that more kids are killed by alcohol than all other illegal drugs put together," said Chairman Jess Davis.

Davis declined to allow us to shoot video of their meeting because he says some members of the group have received threats.

Liquor by the drink passed in November, but a judge soon after threw out the results. A new vote will take place on March 14.
