Is this fool serious? We have enough problems with 21 year olds drinking!

Maybe if these kids behaved like adults, the state would consider lowering the drinking age to 18, but incidents like "kegs and eggs" have cemented the minimum age at 21.

If you've ever been downtown on Friday night, you know EXACTLY why we have an elevated drinking-age.

the mayor wants to push the drinking back on-campus. that would relieve pressure on apd and the student ghetto neighborhood.

Pushing the drinking "back on-campus" would only bring hood rats to the campus. Do that and watch the rapes and assaults skyrocket at SUNYA.

You are correct. But the problem is out of the Mayor's and APD'S hair and becomes a huge issue for SUNY Albany. That's OK with the Mayor, because he hates SUNY Albany, since they won't play his silly political games such as Saint Rose has for years. SUNY Albany has got ballz when it comes to playing with Jerry Jennings.

scroll down to the united states. States will loose money from the feds if they lower the age below 21.
