“We Don’t Serve Teens” House Resolution 1042

The U.S. House of Representatives passed House Resolution 1042 in recognition of the campaign, “We Don’t Serve Teens.” Sponsored by the Federal Trade Commission and supported by public officials and private individuals, the campaign was designed to decrease underage drinking. Visit the “We Don’t Serve Teens” website at http://www.dontserveteens.gov/ to view informative information including statistics.

It was interesting to note that at one winery, Raffaldini Vineyards & Winery, we visited recently in North Carolina, every visitor must show a photo ID. We were past the age of looking under 21 and we still needed to show ID. According to their website, “To encourage responsible enjoyment of our wines, we ask that you have photo ID available to present to our staff.”

In recent months, a group of college presidents has proposed lowering the legal drinking age from 21 to 18. They believe that the current age of 21 encourages binge drinking.

How do you feel about the drinking age? Should 18 year olds be allowed to drink responsibly?
