Underage Drinking is Binge Drinking

The Center on Alcohol Marketing and Youth reported that 96% of the alcohol drunk by 15-20 year-olds is consumed when the drinker is having five or more drinks at a time. Identifying how the age of legal consumption alters behavior is as important, if not more important, than if it affects whether one first begins to legally drink.

    This a solid example of the damaging effect brought upon by the National Minimum Age Drinking Act. Because these drinkers know that the drinking age is 21, it would be convenient for them to have alcohol in one setting, thus lessening the chance of arrest. A drinking age at 18, which must happen, would lessen this risky drinking. Finally, let us unite to carry on Choose Responsibility’s goal!

    Lets abolish the drinking age like in Europe! Raised or lowered ,kids will always undeage drink and that’s why we need to educate at younger ages like in europe so when they get behind the wheel at 15 or 16 they will be experenced drinkers if drinkers at all. Our opponents may be strong but united we can prevail! Our opponents mistake more drinking occasions for higher intoxication rates! Drinking occasions and amount drank are totally different! Let’s be like European countries and remember to drink responsibly, and drive responsibly, from th American Beverage Institute!
