21 probably really isnt old enough. Im 28 and looking back really shows how immature and what poor choices we made thinking they were good.

Just one visit to this community and you would realize that drinking is one of the major problems facing everyone who lives there.

when you are 18 you are legally able to vote smoke and go to jail. you are considered as an adult and if a crime were to be committed you are charged as a adult.if a draft were to happen and you are 18 you would be required to be drug into that draft. if we are holding 18 year olds to be accountable for all these things then we should be able to hold them accountable for drinking i dont beleive 3 years will make a difference if there gonna drink and drive when there 18 then they will when there 21.

They do a wonderful job of protecting our country as they are constantly supervised. We all were 18. Very few of us were responsible enough to drink responsibly. What's the hurry?

I think Alcohol should be Illegal for that fact that people make stupid decisions when they are drunk

I think they should make it illegal for that fact that people make stupid decisions when they are drunk I have never drank a day in my life and maybe I don't under stand it but coming for a home where alcohol was a big factor in my life I just don't think it should be here for anyone to drink

if it gets lowered then it is most likely to cause more and more deaths for our youth.

The old arguments that you can fight wars and smoke at 18 are weak at best. Personally if it was up to me all of these things would be raised to 21 years. I was born and raised in Poplar and what I saw when it came to underage drinking was awful. Not only should the drinking age stay at 21 but the local police (city and tribal) and Sheriff need to start doing more to discourage underage drinking.
