In brief: Teens and alcohol
Although there isn't a "double blind, placebo controlled study" on this topic, the results would be fairly predictable if there had been one based on our knowledge of how drugs/alcohol effect the brain (btw this is true for adults too).
Our judgement/inhibition decreases with increased blood levels, which can lead to poor decisions: unprotected sex, sex with high risk individuals, even date rape.
