Martinis for Teens?

Dr. Morris Chafetz, one of the people instrumental in pushing for laws passed in the 1980s to increase the legal drinking age to 21, now says his actions were "the single most regrettable decision" of his career. We hear his story and the case for lowering the drinking age in the U.S.

Guests:

Dr. Morris Chafetz, psychiatrist who was on the presidential commission in the 1980s that recommended raising the drinking age to 21; he is also the founding director of the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism

Chuck Hurley, CEO of Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD)
