  • About Spring Break Advertising — "Our concern is that very few parents probably see the promotion material. Most of this promotional material is provided to college students and even to high school and middle school children, often without the parents knowledge, and that's of course one of the things we'd like to see addressed, we'd like to see parents actually get involved and look at the promotional material. Some of it is very overtly related to sex."
  • [announcer: Like the vast majority of parents polled by the American Medical Association's "A Matter of Degree" program, AMA board chairperson elect and family physician Dr. Edward Hill is outraged by the promotions] "Things like booze cruises, like all-day drinking parties, like free drinks from 9 PM to 4:30 AM, that sort of thing. Also some of these destinations are a problem. The destinations are often in Mexico, and in Mexico the drinking age is lower, it's 18 instead of 21 as it is in the United States."
  • "We have students die every year at spring break because of the effects of alcohol."
