The purpose of this review is to assess the evidence bearing on the effects of legal measures believed to have some primary preventive value with respect to the incidence of alcohol problems. Excluded from consideration are laws concerned solely with such special segments of the drinking population as incorrigible alcoholics, public inebriates, and impaired drivers. It is true that these laws are sometimes seen to have a possible deterrent effect on the appearance of new cases (Bruun, 1970). However, with the exception of certain legislation directed against impaired driving, the primary effect if any is more likely to be on recidivism rates. In contrast, our focus is on legislation and derivative measures aimed at the whole population of consumers (or potential consumers) of alcohol, and intended to prevent the occurrence of alcohol problems through regulation of the amount or character of alcohol consumption.
