Lowering US drinking age from 21 to 18: Would a lower drinking age help colleges cope?

  • Yes, a lower drinking age is a good idea.

    If the drinking age was lowered to 18, colleges probably would not have such a problem with drunken parties. Many college freshmen like to drink because it is "cool" or illegal. They don't understand the consequences of binge drinking because our culture only teaches them that they shouldn't drink any alcohol, and doesn't educate young people on how to drink responsibly. A lower drinking age is the first step to educating youth about alcohol.

  • Lower Drinking Age

    The drinking age should be lowered from 21 to 18. Drinking responsibly requires a certain amount of maturity. The longer it takes for one to begin drinking, the more maturity should have been achieved. Drinking is a responsiblity that is reserved for those who are mature and can handle alcohol.

  • No, No, No

    I don't think so. Lowering the drinking age would mean more drunk parties, police, and accidents from young adults. People think it should be lowered but i don't think so. I also think that there should be a OLD drinking age limit. 1/10 of old people die from drinking and drugs.

  • Crazy raping rednecks

    When underage people have alcohol in their system, they make ill-advised choices. 76% of rapists found guilty had alcohol in their system at the time. The drinking age should not be lowered because it would lead to higher alcohol consumption in underage people. The law should stay at twenty one.
