    Ought to have every eligible voter in the state of Georgia out there running the steps with them.

      Why? Even if it was totally legal in the state of Georgia, it would still be illegal for under 21. I’m sure the punishment would have been the same if they had been caught with a case of beer since they are underage. I have feeling aside for the legality, Kirby probably looks at this different when they are in the thick of football related activity vs off season.

        I sincerely doubt that the RA would have called in the University’s police department to investigate a case of beer. That’s informed by the fact that our RA found beer in our room and I was subject to discipline from the Housing Dept but we didn’t see any cops. And I’m not sure what UGAPD would have done with the “investigation” of the beer, but I do know that they get stats off of what they do with weed just like every other PD in the state.

        Why’s that? Because you can change the law making marijuana illegal but you can’t make it legal for people under 21?

        • Just curious, but do you believe the same thing about alcohol (lowering the drinking age to 18)?

          I don’t think daily use of MJ is good for you just like multiple drinks per day isn’t good for you or smoking a pack of cigarettes isn’t good for you.

          I think marijuana should be decriminalized and should be as heavily regulated as those other substances are.

          Regarding the football team, if Kirby wants to make them run steps until they puke for doing something he believes negatively affects or reflects poorly on the program, I’m ok with that.

            I think 18 is an adult by any definition of the word and you can be shot in combat or sentenced to life in prison at that age. The notion that you can’t make your own choice about what you put into your body is as offensive as it is stupid. I don’t hear anyone clamoring to raise the age you can join the Marines up to 21.

              I would clamor to raise the minimum age for volunteer military service. But I’m also one to support philosophically universal military service.

              From what we’re learning about cognitive development, it makes better sense to raise the minimum ages for substances with potential to damage development of decision making, etc, centers in the brain. But that’s just me.

            Years ago I agreed completely with you, especially about the age for serving your country. In the service at that time you could drink at 18 (on base) and later, as a civilian, I helped campaign to get the age lowered to 18. There followed the most horrific gore to young people that I’ve ever seen then and now. Drunk driving and drunk driving killing raged in comparison to the past. It was quickly changed back to 21 and the gore disappeared. No, not ever again, because they and society don’t know how to handle them (early drinkers). It was a total shocker.

              Just like everything else, there isn’t a perfect answer. Drinkers gonna drink… and drive sometimes. I believe what has affected DUI arrest and accident rates more than the drinking age are the very stiff penalties associated with it.

              • GC, as I mentioned below, the ride sharing services have helped this as well. There is a different set of safety challenges with those services, but with the right precautions, they have also made an impact on the DUI problem. If you can easily get a ride home for $10-$20, it limits the risk.

            • Today, it seems most of the kids in college use the ride sharing services both ways (sober and not) to prevent a run-in with the police after a night out. In Athens, those services have been a blessing due to the limited number of taxis locally.

          Chilli, great answer. Let’s make weed, and alcohol legal for everyone from birth since you could have that same argument for any age as the limit. Very intelligent on your part. States raised the drinking age from 18 to 21 (with pressure from the fed) for a reason. While we are at it let’s get rid of 16 as the age to drive. Some 12 year olds can see over the steering wheel. No matter what age we set it’s arbitrary (but some common sense went into it). See where I’m going. You have to set some boundary and we as a society (other than you and a few drunk college kids) have accepted 21 as the age of consumption of intoxicating substances.

            The reason why age 21 was “accepted” was because the Reagan administration made raising the age as a requirement for receiving federal funds for state transportation departments.

            Personally, although I never served, I think that if you’re old enough to put a uniform on and risk your life for your country, you’re old enough to drink in it. I would think the same thing for marijuana if it was legalized.

In fact, why don’t we just go ahead and create a separate Bill of Rights for government employees.

                  Oh please oh wise Chili, point me to that section of the constitution that says that we have a constitutional right to consume alcohol. Even after prohibition was repealed states still had the right to enforce their own prohibition. After the repeal of the 18th Amendment, some states continued Prohibition by maintaining statewide temperance laws. Mississippi, the last dry state in the Union, ended Prohibition in 1966.Section 2 of the 21st amendment even banned the importation of alcohol into states and territories that have laws prohibiting the importation or consumption of alcohol. There is no constitutional right to consume alcohol, only that the federal government can’t ban it. States and localities still have the right to do that w/o running afoul of the constitution. Every time we are told NO when we want to do something, it is not always a violation of our constitutional right. Quite frequently it is only a violation of some imagined “right”

                    At what point in your life did you realize you were a full-blown fascist, and have you found that it complicates or simplifies your identity as a Republican?

                    Before you go off getting all huffy with me, recognize that you have just made a lengthy argument for treating rights as transactional for the state. And you did it without even a pause to consider what you were really suggesting. It’s fascinating to watch the puritanical neanderthals wipe their ass with the “freedom” as a concept when it contradicts their sensibilities on what passes as “acceptable.”

                    You’re OK with 18 year olds being allowed to buy beer, ONLY if they have a military ID.

                    Why stop there? How about not granting a driver’s license to anybody who hasn’t served the government? After all, you have no constitutional right to drive a car. Bar anyone who hasn’t served from passing through TSA checkpoints as well. You don’t have a constitutional right to air travel.

                    Hell, I’m sure you’d be just fine if we cut off access to the ballot to everyone except people who have worked for the government, right? I’m sure we could stamp out the MAGA movement really quick if we did that. And since you have no explicit right to vote laid out in the Constitution, I’m sure you’re OK with that since we’re really just telling you NO to something you want to do, not denying you some imagined “right.”

Cox looks like he is kind of floating, but Sinclair looks to be legitimately standing on the metal bleacher. And some have pointed out that they’re wearing their cleats, which wouldn’t be conducive to running the slick concrete steps. The goal is to punish the kids, not risk them getting hurt by sliding and busting their ass.
