Should the drinking age be lowered to 18?

Con

No because your liver is not fully developed until you are 21 and it is easier for your body to handle at that age.

but the liver and brain are not fully developed until 24-25 anyway

Nope. The full development of your brain can range from age 18-30, it can vary per person. The full development of your liver is 18-21, also can vary per person. The law is at that age because you can make better decisions at an older age because your bra is more developed and your body can handle the alcohol better with a stronger liver.

i think that if you are allowed to serve your country in war than you should be able to make your own decisions including drinking alcohol

Well you can drink after you are in the army anyway because you will be over 21. Anyone can make their own decisions.
