18 is the legal drinking age of over a hundred countries, 21 is only in a handful. I think if it is lowered to 18 then there would be less rebellion to drink. I am 18, I do not drink much like much people my age, however I was extremely happy to go to Monteal where the drinking age is 18, simply because I had the ability to drink. It's simply a power thing. It's like we're 18, yes you are adults now...so why not give us respect and responsibility. If 18 year olds want to drink now they will easiliy find a way, and they do, so I don't think lowering the drinking age will increase drinking by much of young adults, I think it would probably decrease it.
