Power Hour? Puhleeze.

1. The news media is again obsessed with the obvious. "OMG people get wasted for their 21st birthday!!!!111one"

2. If you're that stupid at 21 that you can't exercise self preservation over peer pressure, maybe you need to remove yourself from the gene pool. Let's weight the options here: get hassled by "friends" or die from alcohol poisoning. Gee, that's a hard fscking decision.

You can't legislate stupidity. You try to regulate the bars further, kids will just buy cheap hard booze and do it at home. It's kind of like the asinine stuff going on Arizona now where parents can't buy booze with anyone not of age present because everyone must be assisting underage kids in getting trashed. [Which, of course, does absolutely nothing, because a lot of kids are getting their booze from older friends or siblings who go into the store alone. Or they sit in the car while their boozemule goes inside. Yeah, we sure stopped underage drinking with that change!]
