Alcohol Taxes Save Lives & Money is a coalition of individuals and substance abuse prevention, health promotion, local government and taxpayer organizations who want excessive drinking to begin paying for the alcohol-related harms excessive drinking creates. We want to raise the NM alcohol excise tax by 25¢ per drink no later than the 2017 Legislative session.
Alcohol Taxes Save Lives & Money is completely made up of volunteers. We have no paid staff. Our director is Dr. Peter DeBenedittis, a Certified Prevention Specialist who’s whose day job is writing educational curricula.
