Responsible Drinking Happy Hour

The great Cook / SEBS tradition of "Responsible Drinking Happy Hour" is documented in today's Targum in an article titled "Programs at U. Teach Students to Drink Responsibly."  One of my students two years ago used this program as his "case" to help argue that there are ways to help students drink responsibly as an alternative to "prohibition," which we all know is not effective.  In fact, as that student showed, without proper acculturation to drinking, students tend to drink more and binge more often as they near age 21, with alcohol use and abuse simply tracking age and access.
