Con

i think that the drinking age should not be eliminated. lowering the drinking age could cause more harm to young kids. if it was ok to drink at a younger age people could make bad choices and their brains not being fully developed yet it could cause them to not think things all the way through. a drinking age with a limit on the age can give people time to maybe mature and make better choices and see things through

Pro

eliminate the drinking age and let people prove themselves. i believe by doing this a lot more kids could be more responsible but still have fun if they like to drink. im not saying that they should be getting drunk all the time, it can be moderated. turnip

we should not allow people to prove themselves because what if those kids start making bad choices so young its not god for their future. leave the drinking age and let them mature and develop and be able to be responsible enough to drink and make those choices. NO TURNUP

Pro

first off let me elaborate on this whole letting them prove themselves. kids learn from experience, if they mess something up they figure out what went wrong and then fix it. so by letting them drink they can find out that it isnt always just fun and games. they will learn that drinking has some fatal side effects especially when driving. so i strongly believe that if they eliminate the drinking age kids will learn through mistakes or even see others mistakes and even if the drinking age is eliminated that doesn't necessary mean that they have to drink all the time or at all even..

no no. now listen sus man, we cant let them make these choices so young because what if they enjoy it? then they start off young making bad choices leading to more and more problems for the rest of their life. therefore let their brains develop so they can make better choices for their life in the future. swagg yolo gypsy

let them drink when they want. let them learn all about how bad alcohol is for your body. i gurantee you that after one or two times of drinking most kids wont like it therefore it will not be a problem. ooo yolo swag sus man let them be them and learn from they mistakes
