Twenty-One Debunked supports lowering the drinking age to 18, while also raising and equalizing the federal alcohol taxes across the board to $24/proof-gallon, equal to the inflation-adjusted 1991 level for distilled spirits. That would be a little more than an extra dollar for a six-pack of beer or an extra dollar on a fifth of liquor. That could be done more gradually by first raising it to $16/proof-gallon and then to $24 a year later. Additionally, we would also be fine with (though not necessarily wedded to) the idea of setting a minimum price of $0.50-0.75 per standard drink or at least banning the practice of retailers selling alcohol below cost (already banned in many states). Cook would support the latter idea of a price floor while Ellis would most likely not, but both would at least support higher alcohol taxes.
So what are we waiting for?
