I am a part of a movement to bring Cuban-style drinking to the American drinking age. According to the Cuban Drinking Association, they have the right to change their drinking age to 18.

Cubans have been drinking heavily since the Revolution. The oldest known example of a Cuban party was at the Hotel Miami in New York in 1937, which was over 100 years old, so it’s fair to say that Cubans have been drinking in moderation for quite some time, given there is no official drinking age in Cuba.

The main expert is Professor of English and Philosophy José Gaosa, who is the author of the authoritative Cuba Today: A Guide to the History and Culture of Cuba. He has written an article in the Journal of Cuban Studies titled “The Drinking Age in Cuba.
