Industry advertising, state regulations, and alcohol availability

Tuesday, November 3, 2015: 12:30 p.m. - 2:00 p.m.
This session includes research findings on the effects of various factors contributing to alcohol-related problems, including the effects of post-privatization changes in retail sales of alcohol, alcohol marketing practices in social media, alcohol outlet density and alcohol-related crashes, and efforts of alcohol control states to ban problematic products. Findings provide valuable information to be considered in developing alcohol control policies.
Session Objectives: Identify aspects of the liquor purchasing experience and how these changed from monopoly retail stores to post privatization stores marketing liquor. Evaluate whether alcohol marketing practices in social media adhere to self-regulation standards outlined in the Distilled Spirits Council’s Guidance Note on Responsible Digital Marketing Communications. Describe potential effects of policy limiting alcohol outlet density on alcohol-related crashes. Explain how alcohol control states use state regulatory power to ban problematic products.
