Way too much to explain, but the Pros outweigh the Cons big time.

There are to many underage drinkers out there that DRINK and DRIVE already. Lowering the age will only put more irresponsible drunkards on the road and in trouble. We are supposed to take care of our children here on the rez!!!

I agree with you there is enough problems here now without encouraging the young people to drink it is white mans law to rid himself of the indians and just like then they gave our people alcohol to fog their judgement do we want that to happen again

It is wrong to lower the drinking age to 18.These are kids that are just learning to drive cars and get their license.What do you think would happen to a new driver then add alcohol to it,sure more money for the jails and police departments and court house but also more fatalities and injuries.there is not even a taxi around to be a designated driver.if you choose to lower the drinking age you are putting many peoples lives at risk.....
