SAMHSA Rallies Against Underage Drinking by Talking Early, Talking Often and Getting Others Involved!

The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) has embarked on a campaign to provide parents with a way to help communicate the dangers of Underage Drinking to their children.

Mobile Medical Corporation (MMC) supports this cause and would like to provide a portal to SAMSHA's "Talk Early - Talk Often - Get Others Involved" website and action campaign.


Children who drink underage are more likely to:

  • Use drugs More than 67% of young people who start drinking before the age of 15 will try an illicit drug.
  • Become addicted to alcohol. More than 4 in 10 people who begin drinking before age 15 eventually become dependent on alcohol.
  • Get bad grades. Children who use alcohol have higher rates of academic problems and poor school performance compared to nondrinkers.
  • Suffer injury or even death. In the U.S., an estimated 5,000 individuals under age 21 die each year from injuries caused by underage drinking. This includes death from car crashes, homicides, and suicide, as well as from injuries such as falls, burns, and drownings.

Wyoming Workplace Safety Bill 93 Dies in Legislation

Wyoming House Safety Bill 93 was recently defeated in a Senate vote. The Bill would have increased the maximum fines levied on employee deaths in violation of OSHA from $70,000 up to $250,000.

Wyoming has the worst occupational death rate in the country which is recorded at 17.1 fatalities per 100,000 workers. Democratic Senator Sessions believes that the same industry who wants increased safety standards for workers is the same ones who killed the Bill. Sessions said, "It was industry, you bet it was," She charged that some in industry circles secretly lobbied against the bill.

Employers should not always rely on the government to protect their employees. Implementing additional safety measures such as on-site medical services and drug testing will help to increase safety standards on all job sites.

Gov. Dave Freudenthal was unhappy with the vote and said, "Unfortunately, the vote may confirm what some of the critics have been saying about the Senate in particular not being terribly concerned about worker safety. I'm disappointed, and I think this doesn't reflect well on the state."
