UK - 'Nanny state' cited for alcopop strawpedo ban
Student ‘strawpedoing’ drinks craze is banned
Anyone caught “strawpedoing” – downing high-sugar alcopops while using a straw to avoid creating a vacuum – in the Edinburgh University Students’ Association (EUSA) club on Potterrow could now face being thrown out by staff.
Chart-topping hit Blurred Lines was banned by EUSA in 2013 after student chiefs ruled it violated their policy against “rape culture and lad banter”.
EUSA removed the Sun newspaper from all campus shops in 2012.

I would assume if they drink too much they will feel like hell the next day and eventually they get tired of that and drink in moderation or not at all or start down the road of adult alcoholism. No matter who protests what or bans whatever it is."If you are lucky enough to find a way of life you love, you have to find the courage to live it."

Except it's not the state, "nanny" or not, it's a student union, presumably under the auspices of some kind of democratic process. They can continue to "strawpedo" outside of their student union.

The Sun and Robin Thicke bans "step in right direction," according to many.
