Underage Drinking - Not A Minor ProblemUnderage drinking is a problem that touches the lives of many people. Parents, educators, law enforcement, members of the community and youth are all affected by underage drinking. Nearly 4 out of 5 high school students have consumed alcohol by their senior year.
