If you can go overseas and have the legality to shoot and kill people at eighteen
pretty damn sure you're old enough to drink.

The oldest argument "if you're old enough to fight for our country then you're old enough to have a beer" holds true. However the most important fact is that other countries with a lower drinking age or no drinking age has the least number of drinking problems and incidents. Many young men and women in our country don't experiment with alcohol until they go to college and then either develop drinking problems or get alcohol poisoning. I feel the best way to look at this issue is to compare other countries drinking laws to the amount of drinkng related problems they experience to the problems we face in our country in regard to the drinking age we have.

Too many will find a way to drink, so it might as well be legal. All my kids drink at 18 and I got no control over it, they will FIND the way,. if they old enough to vote, to join military and many more, then they old enough to drink.

You should lower the drinking age because that's when teens should be mature enough to drink and stuff ;)
