From the American Medical Association

Alcohol Availability, Promotion, Taxation & Labeling


H-30.989 Nationwide Legal Drinking Age of 21 Years


encourages each state medical society to seek and support legislation to raise the minimum legal drinking age to 21; and

H-30.957 Age Requirement for Purchase of Nonalcoholic Beer


supports accurate and appropriate labeling disclosing the alcohol content of all beverages, including so-called “nonalcoholic” beer and other substances as well, including over-the-counter and prescription medications, with removal of “nonalcoholic” from the label of any substance containing any alcohol;
supports efforts to educate the public and consumers relating to the alcohol content of so-called “nonalcoholic” beverages and other substances, including medications, especially as related to consumption by minors; and

H-30.984 Alcohol Advertising and Depiction in the Public Media

The AMA recommends

that additional well-designed research be conducted under impartial and independent auspices to provide more definitive evidence on whether, and in what manner, advertising contributes to alcohol abuse;

that producers and distributors of alcoholic beverages discontinue advertising directed toward youth, such as promotions on high school and college campuses;

that advertisers and broadcasters cooperate in eliminating television program content that depicts the irresponsible use of alcohol without showing its adverse consequences (examples of such use include driving after drinking, drinking while pregnant or drinking to enhance performance or win social acceptance);

that health education labels be used on all alcoholic beverage containers and in all alcoholic beverage advertising (with the messages focusing on the hazards of alcohol consumption by specific population groups especially at risk, such as pregnant women, as well as the dangers of irresponsible use to all sectors of the populace); and

that the alcohol beverage industry be encouraged to accurately label all product containers as to ingredients, preservatives and ethanol content (by percent, rather than by proof). (BOT Rep. Q, A-86)
H-485.998 Television Commercials Aimed At Children

The AMA opposes TV advertising and programming aimed specifically at exploiting children, particularly those ads and programs that have an impact on the health and safety of children. (Res. 27, A-79; Reaffirmed: CLRPD Rep. B, I-89; Sub. Res. 220, I-91)
