There are instances of rowdy party bus behaviour on the way to proms in the USA. Some of these involve drugs and alcohol. This could prevent a fun night out with friends, and could make a dangerous night out for the people around you.

This workshop is an idea that believe many communities should adopt in order to inform parents about the substance abuse that their teenagers may be subject to.
Parents are able to ask questions that they were 'To afraid to ask' which is, I believe, better than asking a teenager one on one, as they may not be comfortable talking about it.

She was very young and had  her whole life ahead of her, but sadly it had to end through so what bad desisions.

This article demonstrates the importance of not allowing teenagers to drive while under the influence of alcohol. Although drinking eight shots may be fun, or exciting, teens may perceive it as only a small amount of alcohol. The consequences of this are often dangerous especially when driving. Teens should be more diligent concerning alcohol usage and driving under the influences, as in many states the prosecution is heavy.
