dc.description.abstract One of the major challenges faced by states and communities is the prevention of underage alcohol access. Underage drinking is widespread and, to a large extent, tolerated by society. It is also implicated in a range of health and social problems that are both tragic and costly. There are good reasons for a high level of concern about underage drinking: alcohol is the drug most commonly used by youth-more than tobacco and far more than marijuana or any other illicit drug; alcohol is one of the most common contributors to injury, death, and criminal behavior among young people; in addition to the immediate and potentially tragic consequences of underage drinking, early onset of alcohol use increases the risk for chronic alcohol addiction. The bad news is clear and all too visible. Underage alcohol use is a serious problem. But fortunately there is good news as well: a variety of effective strategies have been developed to reduce underage drinking. These strategies can be applied in all sectors of the nation, state, and community – in all areas of the systems that produce, distribute, promote, and consume alcohol. Preventing underage drinking saves lives and saves futures. en_US
