Trends in underage drinking
There was much discussion regarding the "style" of drinking. Many teens now plan for drinking as much as possible in as short a time as possible. This is often easy with the 'cool' design of energy drinks with alcohol. We may need to examine the drinks kids bring into the room more closely.
Do you guys remember 4 loco? It is now available in a reformulated can. Also, she showed us a type of whip cream that has 15% alcohol. It is available at the checkout of 7-11 type stores. Not in the fridge.
Diane is on a internet task force looking at social media for teen behavior and party's. You would be amazed what the kids post.
· 22% of students rode in a car driven by someone who had been drinking alcohol
· 6% of students drove a car after they had been drinking alcohol
· 20% of students had sexual intercourse after drinking alcohol or using drugs
