Indiana Public News Radio has an article on the General Assembly’s study committee getting recommendations from an advocate to reduce underage drinking:
She told a summer study committee today that she wants substantial reforms – like raising the alcohol tax and instituting a social host law. Social host laws are those that punish adults who knowingly allow underage drinking on their property.
I have an idea. Lower the drinking age. I can almost guarantee that will reduce the incidence of underage drinking. It’s one of those malum prohibitum things.
This was part of the Senate Commission on Mental Health and Addiction’s September 6 meeting (pdf).
