BORGs: All the Rage?

March 31, 2023

Black Out Rage Gallons are touted on TikTok as an “alcohol harm-reduction strategy,” but students around the country are being hospitalized for BORG-related alcohol poisoning. Containing up to 17 standard servings of alcohol, BORGs pose serious health concerns. Know the ABCDs of an alcohol or other drug emergency and get medical help when needed. New York State and Cornell “Good Sam” Laws/Protocols apply for the person in need of help and the person who calls 911.
