Things you can do to prevent drink tampering:
The Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commission (TABC) has completed an on-line database that gives consumers access to a list of what alcoholic beverage products are legal for sale in Texas and those products' alcohol content. TABC's Label Approval Database includes all alcoholic beverages that have had labels approved since 2005. Consumers can search the database by permit number, brand name, trade (manufacturer) name, type of product, approval date, or percent alcohol by volume. Each record includes all of this information and an image of the approved label.
The database, which was funded by the federal Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention, can play an important role in the prevention of underage drinking, and in adult consumers' efforts to drink responsibly. A parent or teacher's ability to view a product's label and see the alcohol content can help them play a more educated role in monitoring a young person's activities. Having access to a product's alcohol content is also beneficial if an adult consumer knows how to use it to determine responsible consumption measures. Read the press release about the on-line database.

The Enforcing Underage Drinking Laws (EUDL) Program supports and enhances efforts by states and local jurisdictions to prevent the sale of alcoholic beverages to minors and the purchase and consumption of alcoholic beverages by minors. The Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention (OJJDP) helps states address the problem of underage drinking through block grants, discretionary programs, and training and technical assistance. The EUDL program helps develop comprehensive and coordinated initiatives to enforce state laws that prohibit the sale of alcoholic beverages to minors and to prevent the purchase or consumption of alcoholic beverages by minors (defined as individuals under 21 years of age).
Since 2002, TABC has been the designated state administrator for EUDL grant funds for the State of Texas and monitors each project. The U.S. Department of Justice, Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention (OJJDP), Enforcing Underage Drinking Laws (EUDL) block grant, provides funding. Each project addresses underage drinking through a comprehensive program involving various members of the local community. The funding is used to increase enforcement efforts and provide educational programs to increase the awareness of underage drinking laws and the consequences of underage drinking. In the past, TABC has used EUDL grant money to:
