Scipione slams ‘drink until you drop’ culture

NSW needs to debate the manner in which alcohol is advertised and marketed to ensure children and teenagers are not getting the wrong message about drinking according to the Police Commissioner, Andrew Scipione.

Deeply concerned about a prevalence of drinking to excess among young people, Mr Scipione warned that the ”drink until you drop” culture that exists had to be addressed.

”I’m optimistic we can do this within 20 years,” Mr Scipione told the Herald. ”Otherwise we’re in a bit of strife, because what we are doing now to ourselves, what we are doing to each other … it can’t continue,” he said.
