F&M College Reporter Covers Drinking Age Event

Late last week, [CR] President and Founder John McCardell visited Franklin & Marshall College to discuss the drinking age debate at their weekly Common Hour discussion. Kelly Seeger, a writer for F&M’s College Reporter, covered the event and shot some video of his presentation, which you can watch here. Dr. McCardell noted that despite the law, “the data also show that in overwhelming numbers, those most affected by the law—18, 19 and 20 year olds—are still consuming alcohol.”

Check out the video of the event and let us know if you’d like to bring a [CR] representative to your campus.

    The drinking age must be lowered to 18 along with education and licensing. It’s good that John McCardell went to Franklin & Marshall College to explain the consequences of the ageist drinking age. Ageism is the purpose the terrible law in 1984, signed by Reagan, became law but the consequences of that law is that there’s bing drinking by university students. The age of majority is 18 because from 18 to 20 there are only young women and young men. Repealing that law signed in 1984 will be responsible.
