The drinking age should be eighteen, thats when you are an adult. We the older and so called wiser set think this is the way to handle this age group. Well i disagree strongly, they are citizens just as we are. America is the land of the free and home of the brave!! well it used to be lets stop making laws curtailing freedom shall we!!!!!!!

Police should quit making a big deal about underage drinking. Most teens start drinking at about 16 and there's no way police can catch them all. They should let the ones they do catch off with a warning, tell their parents, or at the very most give them a underage drinking fine.

You know, back when I was younger...we drank, we were responsible however, and that has changed. Kids aren't as responsible now, as they once were.

I don't "disagree" fully that the age shouldn't be 18, I think if one is old enough to fight for their country, they should be able to enjoy a beer...HOWEVER....kids keep showing the world they can't be responsible, so how can the world say "ok, your responsible enough to drink".

Well I agree with some of the posts on this subject I also have issues with others. Therefore, I withhold further judgement on this. I say we arm rassle for a decision.
