Well, the feds didn't "mandate" anything. They merely said that if states refused to raise the drinking age to 21, the feds would withhold federal highway funds from such states.

This would be "extortion" not "mandates." Extortion, you see, is perfectly permissible when practiced by one government looking to force another's hand, but it is illegal when an individual tries to do it to another.
