Underage Drinking

One night I sat down to watch the news.  The reporter said that there had been a major car crash and the occupants of each car were in the hospital.  They later got a report that there had been a bottle of beer in one of the cars and they also found that the bottle of beer...... belonged to the teen.   After watching that I realized  how dangerous alcohol is.


Alcohol is really dangerous but alot of adults and even teens like to hit the  happy juice.  In this article i'll talk about how old you have to be to drink, What's underage drinking, The consequences of too much alcohol, & how to be careful around alcohol.
