    Why do law makers insist on making 18-20 year old adults into subcitizens?

    If you wish to listen to the Monday, November 17 hearing, it is available (wma format) at
    McCardell’s testimony follows remarks by Committee Chair Turner, NJ Senate President Codey, and by the Executive Director of MADD NJ.

    I wholeheartedly support Choose Responsibility’s mission. 18-20 year olds are adults and are capable of making sound decisions. With the drinking age at 18 (if that happens, hope it does) and with education, I believe there will be less traffic accidents than MADD (stop them) thinks. In addition, there must be more debate and we must stop the virtual silence on this topic. Congress needs to debate this.

    Once the National Minimum Drinking age is repealed, then NJ should lower the drinking age like it was from 1972 to early 1980’s. America was more free in the 1970’s than today with Alcohol! My parents were legal drinking age at 18!
