Yes or raise the military age to 21.
When 18,19,20 yr olds cant buy alcohol many/most know where and how to buy drugs.

it always does on polls/debates

I can see making it 19 or 20. All you do by having it at 21 is make for more binge drinking and underground drinking by college age kids.
Plus I'd like to chase some drunk 19 or 20 yr old tail at the bar.

I was looking out for Roonie. I didn't want him stressed out about losing the licenses at his joints.

If they are old enough to fight and maybe die they should be able to drink at 18. There was a study done in N.J. that showed the stats of DUI's before and after the changed the age limit. The numbers of DUI's climbed( almost double) AFTER they raise the age back to 21. Needless to say,also did the traffic deaths. (NJ was 21 than lowered to 18 for appox 5 years than raised the age back to 21)The study was hushed up by MADD.Anyone caught driving drunk should get at least 6 months the first offence and 2 years the second time,and that is if there were no accidents or anyone hurt.

Lower it, but make it so all whites need to blow into a straw to get the car to start so they don't drink and drive.

I guess that it is the age of when responsibility/accountability starts.
Not all kids have a problem with alcohol. Others are an alcoholic waiting to happen and it can strike hard at any age or social status.
I always wished that I could drink like my dad, but had to stop because bad things were happening.
Maybe we should raise the drinking age to 55 and lower the speed limit to 21.

I think if your allowed to die for your country you should be alowed to drink. The less people make a big deal about drinking the less partying I think there would be because it wouldn't be braking the rules and many teens just want to brake rules

If you are in the military, maybe you should get a waiver.
