Press of Atlantic City: MLDA Debate Needed

Following the long holiday weekend, the editors of the Press of Atlantic City offered their advice for the New Jersey Task Force on Underage Drinking in Higher Education and expressed support for a debate about the minimum legal drinking age. They urged the Task Force to throw its support behind New Jersey Assemblywoman Mary Pat Angelini’s medical amnesty bill, and also wrote, “lowering the drinking age should be part of any legitimate review of the problem of underage drinking.” Read the rest of the editorial here.

    Using the term “underage drinking” on those are 18, 19, and 20 is nonsense because they’re adults. In addition, I condemn the New Jersey Task Force on “Underage Drinking” in Higher Education because their goals are ageist. The drinking age must be lowered to 18 along with an alcohol education program. Every state must have a medical amnesty program and the editors of the Press of Atlantic City are correct to say debate is needed on the ageist drinking age. The task force will not succeed unless it implements the two solutions.
