According to an article in the American Journal of Preventive Medicine, deaths associated with underage alcohol consumption reach over 4,000 every year in the United States. Data from the Monitoring the Future (MTF) survey shows past 30-day use of alcohol is higher than any other substance. This has negative consequences for not only the youth, but also their families, friends, and the general public. Some of these consequences include violence, car crashes, suicides, injuries, alcohol poisoning, jail time, and monetary cost.
