States Consider Lower Drinking Age

checkthis.gifSeven States are considering lowering the drinking age. Proponents in Kentucky, Missouri, Minnesota, South Carolina, South Dakota, Wisconsin and Vermont feel that if young men & women can serve in Iraq, they should be able to have a drink as well.

This has some feathers ruffled at MADD and of course there would be the loss of federal highway funds. That may be a dealbreaker, but you can bet that 18-year-olds in those seven states will lobby hard until they turn 21 and no longer care.
