Con

I think the MLDA (Minimum Legal Drinking Age) should not be reduced. In fact, I think it should be INCREASED to 25. As MNN says:' According to the latest research, the human brain does not fully develop until around age 25. '
As ProCon.org says: 'Reports in the 1970's showing that teenage car accidents increased in states where the MLDA had been lowered from 21...'

Pro

While there are statistical pros to increasing the drinking age, I think they are outweighed by the importance of freedom. Allowing people to make decisions, and even mistakes, is more important than statistical outcomes.
