Excessive alcohol consumption, according to the CDC, includes binge drinking and heavy drinking. Binge drinking is defined as four or more drinks in a single occasion for women and five or more for men, and heavy drinking is defined as at least eight drinks per week for women and 15 for men.

Nationwide, 18.0% of American adults drink an excessive amount of alcohol. However, the excessive drinking rate ranges considerably across states. In some states, just over 1 in 10 adults drink too much on a regular basis, while in others, the share is closer to 1 in 4.

LMAO. We're lowest in alcohol consumption because we're overrun in meth (and manufacturing) and hydrocodone use.

I get emails "of interest," and that was one of the topics.  I found it strange, but read it anyway.  lol
