When a person is drunk, they can commit any kind of crime because they are not in their right mind at that particular moment but, the law doesn’t know if you are drunk or not and the law or punishment against sexual assault is high. The victims of rape or sexual assault are mostly women. “Sexual assault, including rape, occurs most commonly among women in the late adolescence and early childhood, usually within the context of a date’. In one survey, approximately 10percent of female of the high school students reported having being rape. Research suggests that alcohol use by the offender, the victims or both, increases the likelihood of sexual assault by a male acquaintance (NIAAA).
Underage Drinking Underage drinking mostly starts at the early ages of 11 to 14 years old. This has become one of the largest discussed issues and major problems in America because of the increase of deaths every year. According to the department of health and human services underage drinking has caused problems such as: public health and safety problems, potential brain damage issues, alcohol disorders, violence, suicides, sexual assault, rape and many car accidents. Underage drinking has become a very huge problem for teenagers where life and health are at great risk. In my point of view as sophomores in high school and as a member of the small community I live in I think that there should be other ways and more classes on underage drinking.
Parent's have their influence on teens to a great extent and the result of this bad influence is alcoholic teens following the principle, like parents, like children.In recent years it's known that people who have/had alcoholic parents are more likely to develop the diorder themselves. Most teens try alcohol for the first time at home and that is where the parents can be held responsible. Instead of the parents influence their children to drink alcohol, they should talk and make it clear to their adolescents that drinking impairs coordination and decision making abilities.

1.5 million people will be diagnosed with schizophrenia this year alone and, consequently, 10% of those will commit suicide. Schizophrenia is most likely to occur between the ages of 17-35 years, with the onset earlier in men than women. 8-13% of all schizophrenics are linked to cannabis use
And of those participating in the study, 44% participated in binge drinking in the 2 weeks before the survey. In my personal opinion I think lowering the drinking age would definitely curve the whole nature of college life. I think there are many people out there who drink, number one because they like how it makes them feel, and number two, they feel rebellious, like they are revolting against the system. If you watch college students sometimes, if they get desperate in their search for alcohol, many of them will go to great lengths to find a way to get it. You will never see a college student put forth that much effort to something ever again in you life, not even his schoolwork.
Binging: Headed for Devastation? Alcoholism has been considered to be something of a mass epidemic and is inevitable because of the rigid grip it holds on Americans today, especially teenagers. While various teens experience the urge to binge drink because of circumstances, others feel the need simply for potential new friends or popularity. It is no contest when comparing high school drinkers to that of collegiate binge drinkers because with age and freedom comes rash decisions made only by those mentally weak and insecure. Binge drinking among college students is indeed a colossal crisis which in itself asks for serious attention on all aspects.
College Binge Drinking I was shocked to overhear my sons comment when he come home from college. He said, “College students are drinking to get drunk, that is their only mission for the night.” Binge drinking among teenage college students has become a huge problem in our nation. Binge drinking has become an enormous problem on campus; not only because of the risks but also because of the problems that go along with it. Binge drinking will bring on problems such as; depression, anxiety, and being impulsive. Webster New Explorer Dictionary defines binge drinking as an act of excessive Consumption of alcohol.
The teens often get involved in many kinds of drinking games such as beer pong, flip cup and kings cup to name a few. As the night goes on, teens begin to get drunk and bad decisions are being made. Young teens could get very drunk because of excessive drinking and begin to get sick, which could lead to alcohol poisoning. Worst of all, others may get behind the wheel of a car and attempt to drive themselves or others home. These are just a few of the problems that happen today to our teens.
