Frequent Binge Drinking

The Harvard School of Public Health 1999 College Alcohol Study surveyed students on 119 college campuses throughout the country and found that almost one in four students were frequent binge drinkers, meaning they binged three or more times in a two-week period. While there is evidence that the ratio of students who have ever binged has changed little since the drinking age was raised to 21, the available evidence suggests that the frequency of binge drinking has increased as well as the volume of alcohol typically consumed.

    The current drinking age leaves contempt for those who have just turned that 21 because many of them drink 21 shots of beer in one setting to signify that contempt. The current drinking age is very ineffective and creates disdain among 18-20 year olds, that is why the drinking age must be lowered to 18, and along with an alcohol lisence and alcohol use education, these problems will be much reduced in an environment of responsibilty.
