Our Proposal

"We propose a series of changes that treat 18, 19 and 20 year-olds as the adults the law says they are"

"We believe young adults will choose responsibility if they are armed with accurate and un-biased information about alcohol"

"Our proposed curriculum will give young adults the knowledge and the power to make healthy decisions about alcohol use"

"We believe that a system of education and licensing will provide young people with a combination of incentive and reward that will compel them to act responsibly"

Choose Responsibility supports a series of changes to treat 18, 19, and 20 year-olds as the young adults the law otherwise says they are. Current drinking laws infantilize young adults. We should not be surprised, then, by infantile behavior from otherwise responsible adults.

We support a series of changes that will allow 18-20 year-old adults to purchase, possess and consume alcoholic beverages.

We propose a multi-faceted approach that combines education, certification, and provisional licensing for 18-20 year-old high school graduates who choose to consume alcohol.

We envision an overarching program that combines appropriate incentive and reward for responsible, lawful behavior by adolescents, and punitive measures for illegal, irresponsible behavior.
