"A 18-year-old Farragut Avenue man was cited for public drunkenness and underaged drinking at 11:53 p.m. at Cedar and Mulberry streets." what a funny statement. how can a MAN be underage drinking. oh thats right we want to grab them young enough to not care about dying in combat or putting themselves into lifelong debt so by every metric they are full fledged adults at 18 unless they want to drink. they sorry your not an adult till your 21. preposterous. I would love to see the age of adulthood raised to 21. no credit card debt till 21 no college debt till 21 no drinking till 21 no military service till 21. or lower the age to 18. can't have both. its hypocritical and immoral to have both. You can DIE for your country voluntarily in war you can sign a legal contract but you can't have a glass of wine.

Hi Chris, I've been to Toronto (MLDA is 19) and Montreal (MLDA is 18) and the teens at the bar were no different than any other young person at a bar around here. I saw no binge drinking or lawlessness. Forbes had a very interesting story on the drinking age and whether 18 or 21 really has an effect. http://www.forbes.com/2009/04/15/lowering-legal-drinking-age-opinions-contributors-regulation.html I'm curious to hear some other reader's opinions.
