    The drinking age must be lowered to 18 along with an alcohol education program. Since the two parts must be implemented, I condemn the police officers for arresting the two adult university students who were supposedly “underage drinking”. Although there are millions of people who support the ageist drinking age, the drinking age must be lowered to 18, and to instill alcohol responsibility among those 18-20, an alcohol education program must be implemented. We must march on for our dignity and to help reduce alcohol abuse.
