Under Age, Under Arrest
Feb. 21, 2014: Sparkman High School, Madison County
The Alabama Alcoholic Beverage Control Board (ABC Board) has launched a statewide campaign to educate students and parents about the dangers of under age drinking.
Tell your parent, teacher or school counselor. If you are a college student, contact your college's student health services department.
This pledge is to yourself and those who you love that you will live responsibly by abstaining from alcohol until the age of 21. We won't share this information with anyone.
Alcohol kills: Each year, about 5,000 people under the age of 21 die as a result of underage drinking.
** These include deaths from drunk driving, other accidents, homicides, suicides and alcohol poisoning.
