[CR]’s John McCardell in the news again

Choose Responsibility’s former president, John McCardell, participated in an online interview last week. The interview, published on Spreecast, came on the heels of his New York Times essay on the age of majority.

The interview, which can be found here, covers Dr. McCardell’s stance on the 21 vs. 18 year old drinking age and provides relevant statistics on brain development and on Congress’s inability to effectively legislate a unified drinking age.

As you may recall from the past, the Ameythist Initiative was founded to lobby Congress to reevaluate the highway funding connected with a state’s minimum legal drinking age. In his interview, Dr. McCardell discusses the importance of bringing this issue before Congress in hopes of making progress on a more effective drinking age.
