Why do you think a change in the legal drinking age is a viable strategy for reducing harmful and dangerous drinking patterns in young people?
The combination of incentive and reward offered by the education and licensing program promises positive effects for those under and over 18 alike. Penalties for violation of alcohol control laws will encourage younger adolescents to abstain until they reach age 18; at the same time, those laws will encourage those over 18 who choose to drink to do so responsibly, so as to avoid revocation of their drinking license. Perhaps most importantly, though, this proposal will re-involve parents, teachers, and other role models in the process of teaching young adults how to drink in moderation. Marginalized under the current law, these figures would again be legally permitted to introduce young adults to alcohol consumption in the home and other safe, supervised locations.
