Underage drinking has been a target for draconian government intrusions. SWAT teams raid college campuses, police bust teenage parties, and even people in their 70s can be asked to show their IDs when buying alcohol from some shops and bars. There has never been any intelligent debate about alcohol. There has only been confusion and emotive responses.
