Lowering US drinking age from 21 to 18: Is a lower drinking age better for socializing?

  • Yes, lowering the drinking age is better for socializing.

    The age to be a legal adult in the US is 18 and so I believe that it makes sense to lower the drinking age to 18. In college campuses, many parties are held throughout the week and it is more than likely that underage drinking is occurring. Now, students have to worry about getting caught drinking while trying so socialize and have fun. If the drinking age was lowered to 18, students would have a better time socializing and not have to worry about cops crashing the parties.

  • Underage drinkers can die from alcohol

    I think drinking should not be lowered because one third of US deaths are from alcohol.Therefore lowering the drinking age would cause more deaths and more violence.For example about 4,300 under age drinkers die a year.Underage drinkers begin bad behavior and violate others. Seven percent of people die from vodka.

  • Drining, Socializing Not Same Thing

    Lowering the drinking age in the United States from 21 to 18 won't improve socializing whatsoever because the two do not correlate. The amount of alcohol consumed at a younger age doesn't encourage or discourage socializing. In order to make socializing better, why not try putting down those laptops, iPads and cell phones to try talking face-to-face.
