Addressing underage drinking is a state priority.
- Young people who begin drinking before age 15 are six times more likely to develop alcohol dependence than those who wait until age 21 (National Survey on Drug Use and Health).
- In the United States, excessive drinking is responsible for more than 4,300 deaths among underage youth each year (CDC Alcohol and Public Health: Alcohol-Related Disease Impact, 2006-2010).
- One in five 10th grade students report using alcohol in the past 30 days (Healthy Youth Survey, 2018).
- One in six 10th and 12th grade students reported riding in a car in the past month with a driver who had been drinking (Healthy Youth Survey, 2018).

- Regulation of Alcohol Outlet Density
Alcohol outlet density refers to the number and concentration of alcohol retailers (such as bars, restaurants, liquor stores) in an area.
- Increasing Alcohol Taxes
Alcohol taxes may include excise, ad valorem, or sales taxes, all of which affect the price of alcohol. Taxes can be levied at the federal, state, or local level on beer, wine or distilled spirits.
- Dram Shop Liabilit
Dram shop liability, also known as commercial host liability, refers to laws that hold alcohol retail establishments liable for injuries or harms caused by illegal service to intoxicated or underage customers.
- Maintaining Limits on Days of Sale
States or communities may limit the days that alcohol can legally be sold or served.
- Maintaining Limits on Hours of Sale
States or communities may limit the hours that alcohol can legally be sold or served.
- Electronic Screening and Brief Intervention (e-SBI)
e-SBI uses electronic devices (e.g., computers, telephones, or mobile devices) to facilitate delivery of key elements of traditional screening and brief interventions. At a minimum, e-SBI involves screening individuals for excessive drinking, and delivering a brief intervention, which provides personalized feedback about the risks and consequences of excessive drinking.
- Enhanced Enforcement of Laws Prohibiting Sales To Minors
An enhanced enforcement program initiates or increases compliance checks at alcohol retailers (such as bars, restaurants, and liquor stores).
