Should be legal, alcohol is something I enjoy and many others do to. I believe 18+ should be able to legally enjoy it also. The ones that are going to abuse it are going to do that either way. Legality doesn't matter in that sense at all. The real question is "What would change if the drinking age is lowered to 18?". Either way almost everyone that wants to drink will do so no matter if it is legal.

as a Marine I was never denied a drink on base and do not recall being denied in town leave the age at 21 if a person is on active duty and want to have a drink he or she will get one

The Bible doesn't prohibit underage drinking.

Who can say when people are 'responsible' enough to drink alcohol? 21 is a number not a maturity level. I know people in their 40's that aren't responsible enough to drink alcohol. I think it's fine where it's at, and I agree about the enlisting age as well.

18 year olds can't make good decisions sober, they deffantly can't while drinking. Some 21 one year olds aren't even mature enough to drink. I think their would be awhole lot more innocent people killed by 18 year old drunk drivers.

18 is still too young then again so is 21 for a lot of people. I don't see why we should change it.

Typical inbred Kentucky, just like the movie Deliverance.

I say abolish the military, bunch of baby-killers. Lower the drinking age back to 18.

The kids that start drinking at the age of 18 aren't really full adults. They'll end up buying drinks for minors

So you're ok with the idea of 18 year olds drinking, just not the possibility of them buying for their younger friends?
