The Community Preventive Services Task Force (CPSTF) recommends maintaining limits on the hours when alcohol can be sold on premises to reduce excessive drinking and related harms. CPSTF found sufficient evidence that increasing hours of sale by at least 2 hours can reduce excessive drinking and related harms but insufficient evidence for increasing hours by less than 2 hours.
