Con

Should the drinking age be 18 or 21?

Pro

I believe that if a person is allowed at the age of 18 to go into the Army then that particular person should be allowed to have a drink. Why is it that a person is allowed to lay down their lives for their country and not be allowed to have an alcoholic beverage?

Should the drinking age be 18 or 21?

Although you are able to go into the army at the age of 18 I feel as though too many lives are taken each year by not just underage drinking but drinking of all ages. Thousands and thousands of people from all ages die each year from not only drunk driving but drunk drivers hitting other innocent people. Also alcohol is the cause to a disease that many people around the world suffer from. Why should the drinking age be lowered if people over the age of 21 can't even handle it?
