New evidence shows that the brain continues to develop until the age of 24, threeyears past the legal drinking age. The message to middle school students in this peer education program is clear:alcohol use is not healthy or cool, most kids do not use alcohol, and those who drink risk irreversible damage totheir developing brains.N E W J E R S E Y D I V I S I O N O F H I G H WAY T R A F F I C S A F E T Y V I D E O L I B R A RY 2007-1-
