On Do you think underage drinking is a problem in Lawrence?

In a college town the size of Lawrence and a college the size of KU with the "slap on the hand policy" to the bars for serving minors, the stage is certainly set for underage drinking.

Given that, it could be a whole lot worse than it is. Most underage drinking is done at private parties where no one is really checking for age.

Underage Drinking a Problem in a College Town? Wow, Ya Think? If you are under age in a college town, You CAN and most likely will Get Drunk. It is all about availability and alcohol is Everywhere.

It's not a problem, most have someone old enough to buy it for them.

Yes -- and so is substance abuse in the middle schools and high schools.

If underage people drinking is, by definition, a problem, then there is certainly a problem.

This is in response to the above commenter: "I don't think so, I know so." Ya mean "I Know so, HIC!"

Making kids wait until their 21 years old before they can drink legally is a problem. We should lower the drinking age back to 18 for beer and wine at least.

Why? Is that what it was when you were that age and YOU were going to parties and consuming the aforementioned substances?

No.........I think there is more of a problem with "Old Age Drinking" and "Thinking".....The older you are to drink.....the less you are able to think.........so it should NOT..... be allowed in the State House! Cheers!
