The Temporary Solution to a Permanent Problem The National Drinking Age I am not the first person to discuss this topic and to be honest Im probably not the only one who will write about this in class But none the less of all of the problems that I see in the spectrum of public policy there are few if any that concern me as much as this I am referring to the stereotypical hallmark of the Fraternity and college scene alcohol but in the case of public policy the national drinking age So how is it that the national drinking age is a public policy problem It is a problem due to the fact that it was instituted for the wrong reasons it was enforced in almost a fascist sense it is a poor solution and it is a waste of money trying to uphold it This law affects everyone in this country whether it is realized or not As a college student and a member of a Fraternity I cant go more than an hour without coming near or being reminded of alcohol Even at the dorms with their zero-tolerance policy I was surrounded by it during my freshman year But why why is it that on college campuses alcohol is such a big deal I truly believe that it is due to the fact that until the age of 21 it is illegal for one to buy sell consume or possess alcohol There is no doubt in my mind that if we were introduced to alcohol at an earlier age and in a controlled environment that there would be less of a desire to have it Lets face it everyone at some point or another in life is drawn to deviant behavior Whether deviant from ones parents authority figures or both in this case nothing adds excitement more so than knowing you are going against the mores of society
