Alcohol is the drug of choice for youth, causing more harm and death for young people than all illegal drugs, combined. There are also serious second hand effects of underage drinking, endangering public health, safety and quality of life. An intoxicated juvenile is also more prone to experimenting with other illegal or prescription drugs. The Laguna Beach Social Host Ordinance can impact underage drinking. In research conducted by the Public Services Research Institute, alcohol abuse by minors results in nearly 3,200 deaths a year and costs the United States $62 billion in related damage, including traffic crashes, violence, teen pregnancies, STDs, burns, alcohol poisoning, property damage, and other risks. In recent years, the costs associated to traffic accidents alone exceed $13.7 billion annually.
