40 Percent of Underage Drinkers Get Free Alcohol from Adults Over 21

A nationwide report from SAMHSA reveals that 650,000 underage drinkers in the past month were given alcohol by their parents or guardians.

Underage drinking is not just a youth problem but an adult problem. MADD believes adults should be held accountable for providing alcohol to those under 21 for the very reasons mentioned in this report. Read MADD's statement on the report and on underage drinking.
