In Georgia and other States, the legal drinking age is 21 years old. Many child safety advocates are in favor of such age restrictions. Teenagers and young adults lack good judgment when it comes to the safe consumption of alcohol. This is especially true when teens and children drink and drive. The Atlanta Journal Constitution reported that a 19 year old was found dead in his basement. It is suspected that the death may have been alcohol related. Tragically, this 19 year old is one of many children, teens, and young adults who die or suffer seriously personal injuries. Alcohol related poisoning is a real danger. Education, common sense, and parental supervision can go a long way to help reduce or limit the number of alcohol related poisoning incidents in Georgia and Other States.
