Drinking culture: American kids and the danger of being cool | CBS Reports

On America’s college campuses, there are epidemics we talk about and those we don’t. When sexual assaults or fraternity hazing deaths make headlines, court cases follow and new rules are enacted, but less attention is paid to an underlying issue – binge drinking culture. This documentary explores how drinking to excess is not only considered normal, but cool, and how for many young people "blacking out" is less a rarity than an every weekend occurrence – with grave consequences. This documentary was first published on Sept. 5, 2019.
