Dr. Tony Farrel is General Practitioner and the head of an Alcohol Action Group. This man is obviously smarter than I am, or at least more educated. In an article in the "Bay of Plenty Times"his is cited as listing five step action plan that believes will implementing these steps will "significantly decrease" the teenage drinking issue.
Increase the drinking age
Reduce the availability of alcohol
Increase the price of alcohol
Stop advertising of alcohol
Increase drinking-driving surveillance
Dr. Farrel states that, "Young people don't react to hard words, they need proper education about ways to keep safe around alcohol". I can't help but think something is missing in this argument. What do you think?
