    The drinking age must be lowered to 18 along with an alcohol education program. The possession of alcohol by those who are 18-20 must not be criminalized because the ageist drinking age already disrespects the age of majority and doesn’t provide licensing for young adults to consume alcohol. It’s good that officials in South Carolina are very interested in the debate. It’s also good that a South Carolina Magistrate struck down the law which criminalizes the possession of alcohol by those aged 18-20.
