Young college people find access to alcohol as it is, and they can't drink responsibly. Lower the drinking age, raise the # of alcohol related deaths.

Raise the price of alcohol by taxing it heavily then lower the drinking age. You'll solve to problems at once. Increased revenue, and decreased alcohol consumption.

The jails are already full every weekend with 21 year old drunks. We would have to build another jail to house the 18-20 year old drunks leaving Overtime!

I would bet you are under the age of 21, yes?? Alcohol in general is just stupid... There are other things much better. Alcohol is nasty and it destroys..

I look at it this way, if at 18yrs old you can join the military I think at 18yrs old you can drank alcohol an be able to purchase it!

That's the silliest argument of all. The two have nothing to do with each other.

From what i have witnessed the 21 year olds cant even drink responsibly. Why would anyone think an 18 year old would do better? Im not saying it is only college kids that cause problems when they drink because i have been around all ages. But there always seems to be a smart mouth in the bunch with this age group or a fight errupting over a jealous boyfriend or girlfriend

When you get back from War, I'll buy you a beer. Fyi- lots of places will sell you beer if you have a military ID. I was in the war, and I had no problem buying it with mine when I got back.

no the two don't have anything to do with each other but if your old enough to die to give me the rights I have then you dhould old enough to drink. 18 year olds are finding it anyway so mean as well make it legal. And its still against the law to drink and drive regardless of your age and there are just as many 30 year old drunks driving home from the bars causing accidents then 21 year olds. Germanys drinking age is like 13 and they don't have near the alcohol related accidents we do.

For one I'm not a kiddo playing nintendo. I'm actually above the drive age. But if you want to pay with your tax dollars for a 18-20 year to go to jail for drinking then your an idiot. Maybe they should make inbreeding illegal and put your mom in jail.

you make a good point even though I don't think it should apply to anyone else at that age but those who serve.

Maturity is not sound at this age? How many
deaths are related to underage drinking now.
I alos believe the military age should start at 21
