Underage Drinking Dangers

Build Your Future, Don’t Tear It Down

Underage Drinking Dangers

Challa Watkins, Reporter

Our bodies develop everyday, it will continue to grow until it’s done. Assuming alcohol will affect the way your body develops, our bodies are not mature enough to handle it yet. Why would you want to ruin your body by consuming something that isn’t even worth it? I know that your “friends” think it’s cool to be drunk and rebel the law, but your safeness is more important than being cool.

Drinking and driving is bad, 40% of all deaths are involving alcohol. If you get pulled over, you’ll get a ticket and that goes in your record. Why risk your future to be cool with your buddies for a couple nights? You’re only in high school, you have your whole life to drink and do as you please, but only when you are of age and are mature enough to handle it.
