More than 100 college and university presidents around the country have signed on to the Amethyst Initiative, a call for national discussion about underage alcohol use. The list includes the presidents of big-name schools like Ohio State University, Duke University and Johns Hopkins University. It also includes two local colleges. The signatories say the current minimum drinking age of 21 isn't working and they're concerned about their students' binge drinking behaviors. The release of the initiative has sparked national media attention and loud opposition from Mothers Against Drunk Driving and other groups. This week, join us for a conversation about binge drinking by college students, the minimum drinking age and what the Amethyst Initiative is working to accomplish.
