Gordon, Randall A.; Minor, Scott W.
Journal of College Student Development, v33 n2 p171-76 Mar 1992
Examined effects on college students (n=464) of the increase in the legal drinking age in North Carolina. In first experiment, students affected by law did not report increase in drinking behavior but did feel change made drinking more attractive. In second experiment those affected by law reported higher rates of alcohol consumption subsequent to passage of law. (ABL)
