Let My Students Drink is a very brief article/interview indicating a lot of college presidents are in favor of lowering the drinking age. I strongly support a lower drinking age and generally treating people like adults when they reach 18 years of age. And parents should be permitted to introduce their under 18-year-old kids to beer and wine.

i understand that it increases the rate of traffic accidents, but i just don't see how it's fair to not allow drinking at 18, but you can go to war, vote, be held up to adult laws, etc. it doesn't make any sense.

MADD insists that alcohol-related traffic accidents were reduced after the age limit was raised, but apparently these accidents decreased across the board and not just among people 18-21.
