Comments:The tobacco industry has been heavily targeted for their advertisements and their effect on children and youth. However Joe Camel is no less persuasive then the Budweiser dog or those singing frogs. Drunk driving and binge drinking are imminent threats to our youth. More imminent than death from smoking (although I am not downplaying this threat). The alcohol industry should be held to the same standards as the tobacco industry, at the very least.
