Pennsylvania Launches New Program to Help Combat Underage Drinking

The Pennsylvania Liquor Control Board has launched a brand new program to help parents talk to their children and prevent underage drinking.  The latest research suggests that two in three kids have tried alcohol by the age of 12 and that children who begin drinking by age 13 are four times more likely to become alcohol dependent later in life than those that do not.  The purpose of this program is to provide resources to help parents have a conversation with their kids about underage drinking.
