Studies show that when the legal drinking age has been lowered especially to the age of 18 among college students the amount of binge drinking has significantly decreased. If we decrease this age the detrimental affects among college students will greatly decrease due to the fact that college students will not feel the need to consume high amounts of alcohol because they will not feel the need to rebel because it will be legal.
If the age limit changed for drinking then more younger people would want to drink. There would be more deaths by a drunk driver. And there would be more people that get fined for DUI. Some younger people might not know how to control themselves and they could do something that is against the law.
