Open discussion: Would you stop at buzzed?

Posted at 8:44 AM on March 20, 2008 by Julia Schrenkler

Can a "Stop at Buzzed" campaign work to moderate college drinking? MPR's Tim Post reports a student-run campaign urges college students to 'Stop at Buzzed':

A student-run campaign on the two campuses doesn't ask students to stop drinking altogether, but rather to stop drinking when they feel "buzzed."

Here's a definition of the alcohol-induced buzz from college student Kia Becht.

"You're relaxed," Becht said. "You're having fun, but you're not to the point that everything is starting to spin. You're still able to carry on a conversation that's not filled with slurs. You can walk straight."

Does the definition help? Can this reduce over-the-top college age drinking? Join our online discussion or submit a commentary with your take on the campaign and college drinking.
