Because if u want a drink at age 18 19 20 you shoal have . These parents are let 10 11 12 year old have drinks . So why can't 18 19 20 have drink that these younger kids are having . This is unfair that they are drinking .
I believe if you are able to make the rational decision to enroll yourself in the army, you should be able to legally have a drink as well. If an individual is willing to risk their lives for their country at age 18, you should be able to have a drink .
It should because you are old enough to be in the war. In the Army they go out to get some beers so why can't 18 year olds be aloud to drink. 18 years olds drink anyway why not make it a law so they can and no get in trouble for it if they have been drinking.
Many rights in the United States are conferred on citizens at age 21 or older. A person cannot legally purchase a handgun, gamble in a casino (in most states), or adopt a child until age 21, rent a car (for most companies) at age 25, or run for President until age 35. Drinking should be similarly restricted due to the responsibility required to self and others.
We should not lower the drinking age because kids cannot handle the responsibility. There would be way to many DUI's if we lower the drinking age. These college kids cannot be trusted to drink responsibly. I for one do not want to be murdered by some drunk 18 year old.
The drinking age should not be lowered to 18 because when you are 18, your brain is not yet fully developed and could permanently affect your brain. This could seriously hurt your chances of not having brain damage from drinking. This also endangers you and others around a lot more because you are not yet a fully responsible person and that can hurt and even kill others because you are not yet ready to go out into the great wide world. You are also more likely to drink and drive at 18 than at 21. This can kill you and others around you. You would also be more of a subject to causing other troubles and even breaking the law under drinking's influence, and may cause you to commit crimes such as murder, treason, assault, and of course Drinking While Intoxicated (DWI).
The drinking age should not be lowered because it increases the danger and risk of affecting your, and others lives. It is flat out dangerous to drink at any age. It needs to stay as it is, not be lowered. If it is lowered, there will be car accidents, assaults, treason, people breaking the law and many other worse things. It CAN NOT be lowered.
