What’s needed. A tip from the new “Hazing: Destroying Young Lives”

Some schools try to stop drunk driving by sponsoring buses to the popular clubs where students often use counterfeit identification cards to get served or have older students slip them drinks in secret.. The universities rarely or never check the ID cards when they get on the bus. That’s a way of condoning underage drinking. It simply shuffles the problem from the school to the bars. Put pressure on schools to have the bus drivers check IDs as well. –Hank Nuwer
