If the drinking age was lowered back where it should be college adults could legally drink beer in bars instead of in basements. This has led to more binge drinking - especially of vodka and other spirits which are easier to conceal. Vermont is considering the repeal of the 21-year-old drinking age - a move applauded by the former head of Middlebury College. teens will - and are - drinking. The idea of "pre-gaming" because they cannot drink in public leads to a whole litany of problems. Maybe we should be more "European" in our dealings with drinking: drinking age of 16 , driving at 18. Or, incease our repeat drunk driving penalties or for those of adults under 21.
