Default Re: The Drinking Age

I was actually talking to my mom about this the other day.

We both agree that in the US if you are allowed to vote and enlist in the military at 18, why shouldn't you be allowed to drink then too

Obviously, drinking at 18 could cause some problems, as far as 18-year-old friends supplying alcohol for parties and such, so it kind of makes sense for it to be older.

Also, most people who are 18 don't have the maturity to drink, and there are many 21 year olds who aren't mature enough.


In summation, I think the drinking age should be lowered to 18, simply because one is legally and "adult" at that age.

Peace out loves,

Meg
