Lowering the Drinking Age

I basically agree with the college presidents: the drinking age should be lowered to 18. If drinking is brought out into the open, there's a much greater opportunity to control it in a manner that will diminish binge drinking and other forms of abuse. And as a general matter, it is hard to tell an 18-year-old that he or she is old enough to serve in the military or to cast a vote in an election but not old enough to drink an alcoholic beverage.
