How Colorado Ranks on List of Drunkest States in America

Unfortunately, those good times and good drinks can turn sour very quickly when limits are exceeded.

Using data from the 2022 County Health Rankings & Roadmaps, 24/7 Tempo (part of the 24/7 Wall St. Media Network,) composed a ranking of the drunkest states in America. While Colorado did not make the top of the list, the state still ranked pretty highly, coming in at number 23.

20.1% of adults in Colorado were reported to drink excessively, which is a tad higher than the US rate of 19.8%.

When looking at fatal car accidents involving alcohol the results were even worse, coming in at a stunning 34%. That number is actually the 9th highest in America, surpassing the national average of 26.6%.
