Results. About % of those ages 12–20 who consumed alcohol in the past month drank some wine or spirits. In states with a retail monopoly over spirits or wine and spirits, an average of % fewer high school students reported drinking alcohol in the past 30 days and % fewer reported binge drinking in the past 30 days than high school students in non-monopoly by: Alcohol Monopoly States. There are currently 18 government alcohol monopoly states or “control states” in the U.S. The term “control state” is popular but misleading. That’s because all states control and regulate the sale of alcohol. Therefore every state is a control state. However, only 18 are gavernment alcohol monopoly states. History. The alcohol monopoly was created in the Swedish town of Falun in , to prevent overconsumption and reduce the profit motive for sales of alcohol. It later went all over the country in when the Swedish parliament ordered all sales of vodka to be done via local alcohol monopolies. In , Russia established a state monopoly on alcohol, which became a major source of revenue . A study reported that Nordic countries with state-run monopolies over alcohol sales had higher prices, although the observed differences may have been due to varying tax policies. Only two other published studies examined alcohol price differences between control and license states [11,12].

This article summarizes the contents of Alcohol: No Ordinary Commodity (2nd edn). The first part of the book describes why alcohol is not an ordinary commodity, and reviews epidemiological data that establish alcohol as a major contributor to the global burden of disease, disability and death in high‐, middle‐ and low‐income countries. STATE ADVERTISING BANS, MONOPOLY, AND ALCOHOL DEMAND: TESTING FOR SUBSTITUTION EFFECTS USING PANEL DATA by Jon P. Nelson* Department of Economics Pennsylvania State University University Park, PA [email protected] Abstract. Using a panel of 45 states for the period , this study analyzes the importance of several restrictive alcohol . The National Prevention in Practice Conference will deliver local and international speakers sharing their expertise on strengthening capacity of community-led action on alcohol and other drugs. Explore various models of prevention and discover practical examples of successful strategies that have mobilised communities.   There is plenty of evidence that suggests alcohol monopolies keep alcohol sales low, which in turn is believed to keep consumption down and minimise abuse.

10 The State and the trade: the drink question at the turn of the century; 11 Central control: war and nationalisation; 12 The study of inebriety: medicine and the law; 13 The pub and the people: drinking places and popular culture; 14 Prevention and health: alcohol and public health; 15 Beer orders: the changing landscape in the s.   Background. Government alcohol monopolies were created in North America and Scandinavia to limit health and social problems. The Swedish monopoly, Systembolaget, reports to a health ministry and controls the sale of all alcoholic beverages with > % alcohol/volume for off-premise consumption, within a public health mandate. The 17 control or monopoly states as of November are. Alabama – Liquor stores are state-run or on-premises establishments with a special off-premises license, per the provisions of Ti Code of Ala. , carried out by the Alabama Alcoholic Beverage Control Board.; Idaho – Maintains a monopoly over sales of beverages with greater than 16% ABV. Alcohol monopolies in 18 U.S. states, some of which are currently threatened with privatization, were mostly set up after Repeal of Prohibition 50 years ago. These “control states” are also “license states” with respect to beer and on-premises sales; all such “control states” monopolize the wholesale level, and most also monopolize the retail level of sales of spirits by the bottle.
