One in 10 students (10%) drank alcohol once a week."

"The origin of the word is still not determined fully, but is somewhere between these 2 explanations, where the word “Al” means “The”:

Al Kohool: the makeup, referring to the use of the distillate in the manufacture of eyeliner. The word kohool is the plural of kohol, which means eyeliner. Al Kohool is the current Arabic word for alcohol, and is the most likely explanation.
Al Ghoul: the same word exists in English, ghoul, means monster or spirit, and is similar to how we refer to alcohol as “spirits”. Though it is far removed from the current Arabic word, it is possible that the word had reentered the Arabic vocabulary due to foreign influence, and modified to its current form."

"Yes, alcohol is legal drug if you are of legal age. In Ontario you must be at least 19 years old to buy or drink alcohol. The legal drinking age is 19 years throughout Canada, except for Quebec, Manitoba and Alberta. These provinces allow drinking at age 18. In the United States, the drinking age is 21 years."
Drinking alcohol often can effect your relationships with people. For example,
this can make you angry or aggressive and no one wants to be around someone who acts like that. Also, when you try to get a job they wouldn't want to hire someone angry and aggressive they would want to hire the dependable person with the great attitude.
