Great Debate VII: Drinking Age Discussion

A recap of the Great Debate VII about lowering the drinking age. This includes some of the arguments from both sides, the Liver Savers who were against lowering the drinking age and the Common Sense team which strongly suggested that the drinking age should be lowered from 21 to 18.

A disclaimer was made saying that the views taken by debate participants do not reflect their personal opinions; they were just the outcome of drawing straws for which side they would have to defend. Each team would have an introduction, 3-4 minute presentations by each student, and then a closing statement. Then, each team could rebut comments from their opponents and answer audience questions.
