18 To Drink?

A Kansas City man wants to lower Missouri's drinking age to 18.

The Secretary of State has signed off on a petition that could put the controversial question to voters next November. The proposed ballot initiative would lower the age to buy and consume alcohol from 21 to 18.

You can watch my KY3 News @ 10 report HERE.

The group organizing the petition can be found HERE.

Here's the text of the proposed petition.

Can you imagine any community leader, law enforcement officer or politician even come close to supporting this? Maybe it's just a ploy to try to get younger voters to the polls?
