Health Tip: Celebrate Graduation Responsibly

(HealthDay News) -- College and high school graduations are around the corner. While graduations are a time to celebrate, safety principles should not be forgotten.

The legal drinking age across the United States is 21. Adults should not host parties for underage drinkers or buy alcohol for minors, says the Rhode Island Department of Health.

Adults over 21 should not drive drunk. For those who do plan to drink, arranging a designated driver or taking a taxi is the safest route.

It is important for parents to talk to their kids about the dangers of underage drinking.
