Alcohol Advertisements in Youth-Targeted Magazines Need Stronger Limits, Study Suggests

Earlier this month, the Center on Alcohol Marketing and Youth (CAMY) at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health studied over 1,200 alcohol advertisements in magazines targeted at young readers and found that they violated alcohol industry standards, especially being in magazines targeted at an age group under the legal drinking age.

After the study, Director of CAMY and co-author of the study David Jernigan, PhD said, “It’s time to seriously consider stronger limits on youth exposure to alcohol advertising.” This is the first study conducted on youth exposure to problematic content in the past 10 years.
