A rise in alcohol consumption among teenagers has resulted in a move to tighten punishment for selling alcohol to minors. The National Anti-Drug Coordinator Jindrich Voboril on Tuesday confirmed that a proposed amendment to the law should significantly raise fines for the offense and should give the authorities the right to close down for several days pubs which repeatedly break the law. According to a survey by ESPAD – the European School Survey Project on Alcohol and Other Drugs – 21 percent of Czech 16-year olds go on a drinking spree at least three times a month, 15 percent of those drink spirits. The number of teenage girls who drink beer has doubled since 1995.
