Con

According to procon.org,(con 1) "Lowering MLDA( Minimum Legal Drinking Age) 21 would be medically irresponsible. Alcohol consumption can interfere with development of the young adult brain's frontal lobes, essential for functions such as emotional regulation, planning, and organization. When alcohol consumption interferes with this early adult brain development, the potential for chronic problems such as greater vulnerability to addiction, dangerous risk-taking behavior, reduced decision-making ability, memory loss, depression, violence, and suicide is greater. " (con 1).

Our brain doesn't stop developing until 25, shouldn't you be arguing to increase the age limit?
