    I will buy the long-sleeve shirt from Choose Responsibility, if available, before November. The drinking age must be lowered to 18, the real age of majority, with its important components. Late summer, September, and Fall, starting in late September, are times when binge drinking can be as common during spring break. The ageist drinking of 21, an imposter age of majority, does nothing to encourage those 18-20 in consuming alcohol responsibly but often times consuming alcohol as if as they have alcohol abuse.
