New alkoholudspil: It must be the end of velbenyttet trick among young people

The Danish youth is number one when it comes to drinking alcohol, and the will of The Conservative people's Party put an end to with the new initiative.

the Proposal has three points, one of which will lead to the so-called proxysalg, where the age of majority persons buy 'hard' alcohol to a minor for a monetary gain, should be illegal.

It will say that minors no longer will be able to pay for to get the help of from, for example, their older friends, siblings or family members if they want to have their fingers in a bottle of snaps for the upcoming christmas parties.

"We would like to limit young people's access to strong alcohol," says sundhedsordfører Per Larsen (K) on the proposal, which has already been introduced in Scotland.

the Rapporteur points out that the proposal primarily focuses on the young, who stand in front of the supermarket and try to persuade random customers to purchase alcohol for them.

"We know that young people, who simply stand in front of the Net or other supermarkets and offers older strangers a 50'is to buy something stronger for them, and it is simply inappropriate," said Per Larsen.

At the present stage, a 16-year-olds only buy alcohol up to 16.5 percent.

"We will need to tighten up. Studies show that young people drink themselves to a stupor, and it is not justifiable. It has harmful effects when children of that age are highly intoxicated, so we would like to limit their access."

What about the parents who estimate that their 15-year-old may well tolerate a single snaps or two for your christmas feast?

"It is within the family, and if the parents have decided it, then it is their responsibility. There, where we will turn down, are only at the proxysalg, where there is an economic link between the young person and the person who purchases the alcohol."

in addition to making proxysalg illegal, will The Conservative Party also raise the age limit on the 'hard' alcohol, so that people under the age of 18 years are only allowed to buy alcohol with seven percent or less.

This is in contrary to The statements in the last week, where sundhedsordfører Rasmus Horn Langhoff of the DR refused to raise the age limit, and among other things said the following:

"I'd rather have our 17-year-old young people drink a beer or two, than that they on the sly to drink vodka or smoke marijuana."

it says Per Larsen (K) the following:

"Marijuana is already regulated by law, so that, the authorities must intervene."

The third and last point from The Conservative people's response is that the financial penalty for the sale of alcohol to minors should be raised. The party's proposed bødetakster can be seen below:

Alkoholdebatten has filled the political parties agenda the most recent time, since the OECD report was published on Thursday last week.

the Report shows, among other things, that Denmark's young people will still drink more and earlier than most other european countries.

Danish Regions said to TV 2 that the government should introduce a minimum age for the purchase of all alcohol, also beer and wine, at 18 years instead of 16 as in the rest of Scandinavia

"It's foot-dragging, that Denmark is the only country in the Nordic countries still allow the sale of among other things, alcopops, breezers, beer and wine to 16-year-old," said Karin Friis Bach (R), chairman of the Danish Regions ' health committee, to the media.
