    The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has declared underage drinking a major health problem - but the solution isn't as simple as lowering the legal drinking age, says a new study published in the Journal of Studies on Alcohol and Drugs. Before the legal age was set to 21 in the 80s, some states had a minimum drinking age of 18. And Dr. Andrew Plunk, an assistant professor of pediatrics at Eastern Virginia Medical School in Norfolk, found that these states also had more high school dropouts.

  13. Does the Drinking Age Affect Dropout Rates?Read the original story w/Photo

    Sep 27, 2015 | Time

    Should the minimum drinking age be lowered to 18 from the national mandate of 21, established by the National Minimum Drinking Age Act of 1984? Debate has ebbed and flowed, but many people believe that if a person can fight for their country and vote at 18, what's a swig of booze?

The study shows that in the run-up to the landmark 1984 act, states with lower minimum drinking ages saw higher high school dropout rates - in addition to what's been already documented as other effects, such as lower educational attainment, higher substance abuse, and more.
