  • It should be raised to the age of 21

    I believe that the age for drinking should be raised to the age of 21. Many young people are not very responsible about what they do. They do not follow the rules of driving. Many of the will go to jail. Many of them will do something dumb and kill themselves or other people around them.

  • Drinking age raised

    I think the drinking age should be raised to 21 because teenagers are more irresponsible than a 21 year old would because it is more likely for a teenager to drink while they are driving and then get into a bad accident or to use driving as a way to go to a bad party when your parents dont want you to go. And my secound reason is that a teenager would more likely pick up a phone call or text than a 21 year old would because a 21 year old would be more mature and probially have a wife!

  • The drinking age should be raised to 21.

    Underage drinking can be a serious problem. The legal drinking age should be raise to 21 to prevent these problems. If the age is raise, people will be more mature when they start drinking, and they will be less likely to abuse or become addicted. Raising the legal age is a good idea.

  • Stage of Brain Development

    The human brain is still developing until the age of 25, and the consumption of alcohol can negatively effect the growth and development of the human brain, and therefore affect other aspects of human growth and development. If the drinking age was raised to 21 instead of 18, it would give the human brain three more years of growth before the development was hindered by alcohol.

  • Just think about it,

    18 year old brains are still growing and devolving, drinking alcohol at this age will slow down and affect your brain in terrible ways. I know 18 year olds can vote so I doubt that a law would be able to be changed...So many teens have become addicted to alcohol and drugs....If we can get the legal drinking age bumped up to 21, the drivers would have more experience and the ability to make better choices. Because let’s face it, 18 year olds don’t always make the best choices.

  • Drinking can affect your brain and at 18 your brain is not fully developed

    The drinking age should be raised from 18 to at least 21, because the human brain is not fully developed until you are about 25 years old, if we raise the drinking age the possibility for an underage person to drink will also be raised in age. Even though you are mostly considered an adult at 18 your brain is not developed fully and so you should only be considered an adult if you are at least 21 (25).

  • Alcohol is terrible for you

    Alcohol can cause so much damage not just to your body but to your mind. Mentally you can not take the amount of alcohol in drinks like wine. Being drunk means you don't know anything about what you have done. It's basically like being knocked out for however long dreqming.

  • Brain development in 18-year-old's

    At 18-years-old, the prefrontal cortex of the brain is not yet fully developed. That crucial part of the brain is responsible for inhibiting impulses and planning and organising your behaviour to reach a goal. 18-year-old's reward system is also more sensitive to peer pressure at this stage. Drinking alcohol at 18 can cause damage to the brain and have effects such as of impaired problem solving and other cognitive functioning.

  • Should not be raised to 21

    Its fun as and all you's who said yes are ...... Anyways if anything it should be lowered to 16 or something cause that would be pretty gangsta, don't be a sad guy and click yes, you's are actuals off if you's do aye like you's are no fun so don't be sad :)

  • Waste of time.

    Guys.Whether the government raises the drinking age to 21 or 41.Anyone can drink .Its a free country ...If you want it; you will go get it ...Simple as that .I think they are honestly wasting their time,and resources to make this work .Because the truth is ..This is SA .We are corrupt.Lol............

  • Wouldn't make any difference

    Main problem with drinking is binge drinking, and this is mainly with people under 18. Need to follow examples of countries like France, who introduce alcohol in a controlled setting (watered down wine with a meal) from a young age, so when people become older, approaching legal age, they know how to drink responsibly.

  • No it shouldn't be raised!!!

    The only reason the drinking age was raised was because the federal government gave grant/money to the states to fund the construction of highways but with one condition, the states raise the drinking age to 21. So all states adopted this, because who doesn't want free money. Now states have found ways around this, for example being able to drink at 16 as long as it is only in your home with your parents consent.

  • No it shouldn't..

    Raising the age will cause more people buying illegally. The problem isn't the age, it's the education of parents. If the age is raised to 21 then 18 year olds might as well not be considered as adults, if they can still vote then why should the age be raised? The sad part of it all is they think this is the biggest problem in SA, why not focus on bigger problems in SA? PATHETIC.

  • It is already

    I'm in America where you have to be 21 to drink. I disagree. You can drive at 16. Smoke at 18. Go to war at 18. But not drink? Ridiculous. It doesn't curb underage drinking either. I started drinking at 14. So you should be able to drink at 21.

  • If you´re desperate to get alcohol, you will get it.

    Regardless of the age, you will always find someone who is willing to buy you the alcohol you´re not able to buy.
    In germany it´s actually legal to buy alcoholic drinks with <10% vol at the age of 16 and we do not have great underage drinking problems.
    Kids have to learn about alcohol!
    And if they are able to buy&drink beer or something like that, they can find out about what alcohol does to you without getting super-drunk very easily.
    It might be good though to raise the drinking age of spirits with more than about 25% vol to 21.
