Salt Lake City, UT – Over 100 leaders of universities across the country agree that binge drinking is a problem on our campuses. Westminster College President Michael Bassis is among them, and he's signed on to what's called "The Amethyst Initiative." It calls for a public debate about how we deal with dangerous drinking - including the current legal drinking age of 21. Tuesday on RadioWest, we're talking about the Amethyst Initiative and about what current research says is the best way to educate youth about alcohol.
