Parents urged to talk to teens about alcohol use
Grand Futures Prevention Coalition is using the Speak Now campaign as a reminder for parents to talk to their teens about alcohol ahead of prom, which is May 18 in Routt County.
Speak Now, a statewide campaign to prevent substance abuse, created the video "How to Fail Prom" (http://youtu.be/ID4p5sRvVeM) to highlight the consequences and dangers of teen drinking.
About one in four Colorado high school students reported binge drinking in the past 30 days, according to a Healthy Kids Colorado survey.
