Everclear Faces Iowa Ban

Following a hazing incident in which a freshman was hospitalized with a blood-alcohol content of 0.5 percent, Iowa is considering banning the high-proof neutral grain spirit known as Everclear. What do you think?

"But high-proof vodkas are often essential for freshmen whose gulping muscles aren't fully developed."

Damon Woods • Loader

"Everclear overconsumption is certainly a major problem at colleges, but such a ban would be entirely unfair to those of us Iowans who responsibly enjoy a glass of jungle juice with our meals each evening."

Jessie Coles • Job Order Clerk

"That's why freshmen aren't invited to my parties."
