PCLB awards grants to prevent underage drinking, promote responsible consumption

The Pennsylvania Liquor Control Board will commit over $1 million towards efforts to prevent underage drinking in the state of Pennsylvania. PCLB chairman said of the grants, “The PLCB understands the many issues communities face as a result of underage drinking and irresponsible consumption. These grant awards allow us to make a positive impact on the health and well-being of Pennsylvania families and their communities.” Focusing on health and safety, the grants will discourage underage drinking and will also encourage responsible consumption for those of age.

    The Pennsylvania Liquor Control Board is making a mistake by putting more than $1 million to fight “underage drinking”. Preventing alcohol drinking by those 18-20 will not help people who are 21 and older drink more responsibly so the PCLB is wrong on that. The PCLB is doing what other alcohol bureaus are expected to do, which is to be hard against “underage” drinking. This type of effort doesn’t address the problem of binge drinking because that effort is not designed to address this problem. If the drinking age was lowered to 18 with restrictions to encourage alcohol responsibility, binge drinking would be significantly lower for young people.
