Minnesotans Are Drinking Themselves to Death at a Unprecedented Rate

From a story on News From The States by Christopher Ingraham headlined “Minnesotans are drinking themselves to death at a unprecedented rate”:

More than 1,100 Minnesotans died due to excessive drinking in 2021, according to data recently released by the CDC. The number is a record high for the state, representing a doubling of the mortality rate since 2014 and a continuation of a pandemic-era spike in alcohol deaths.
