Broken Teens

New campaign from MADD New Mexico (USA). Studies show that alcohol impacts the brain much more dramatically in teens than it does in adults. That is visualized in this artwork entitled Broken Teens.

Adults continue to allow those under the legal drinking age to drink—illegally—by selling alcohol to those under 21, providing or purchasing alcohol,  looking the other way when teens openly talk about their drinking exploits, and refusing to hold other adults and youth accountable for breaking the law.

Is this eating disorder ad too sexy?
