5 Vocabulary Alcohol- A drug that is produced by a chemical reaction in fruits, vegetables, and grains. This is a fast-acting drug. Depressants- Drugs that slow down the body’s function and reactions.

6 Vocabulary Intoxication- A person’s mental and physical abilities have been impaired by alcohol. Blood Alcohol Content (BAC)- A measure of the amount of alcohol present in a person’s blood.

7 Facts on Blood Alcohol Concentration (BAC) At.020 light to moderate drinkers begin to feel some effects. At.040 most people begin to feel relaxed. At.060 judgment is somewhat impaired, people are less able to make rational decisions about their capabilities (for example, driving). At.080 there is a definite impairment of muscle coordination and driving skills; this is legal level for intoxication in most states. At.10 there is a clear deterioration of reaction time and control; this is legally drunk in all states.

8 Facts on Blood Alcohol Concentration At.120, vomiting usually occurs. Unless this level is reached slowly or a person has developed a tolerance to alcohol. At.150, balance and movement are impaired. This blood-alcohol level means the equivalent of 1/2 pint of whiskey is circulating in the blood stream. At.300 many people lose consciousness. At.400 most people lose consciousness; some die. At.450, breathing stops; this is a fatal dose for most people

After 3 hours of drinking (1 drink = 12 oz. of beer): Female: 4 drinks = BAC.08 Male: 5 drinks = BAC.076 Alcohol abuse and intoxication are the single major contributors to auto deaths, domestic violence, sexual assault, date rape, suicide, accidents, drowning, most violent crime, and countless health problems
