Thumbs down to Urban Outfitters

Our federal government (via one of its health branches, the Centers for Disease Control, CDC) is too entangled with corporate well-being to most effectively demonstrate concern about your health. If our federal government were truly concerned about liver disease it would better address many other issues, preventively, including alcohol consumption. Moreover, alcohol consumption in teens ushers in a whole different set of health/behavior issues. Shame on a major retailer, Urban Outfitters, for selling products (e.g., Tee-shirts) that promote underage alcohol consumption and shame on our laws that protects the rights of “brands” to produce clothing that promotes inappropriate behaviors.

I love my little sister and care more about her cousins, young friends, and other peers to suggest that Urban Outfitters has anything but lamentable style for selling these.
Thumbs down.
