Why is the legal age to drink 21 in the majority of USA?


When the legal age to join the military is 18, the legal age to consent to sex is 16, the legal age to buy pornography and lottery is 18, and the legal age to be held responsible for a signed contract (credit card/house purchase) is 18.

    It's no secret that alcohol can interfere with appropriate decision making and it also contributes to violence and fatal car accidents. But do you think the law prevents or stops people under 21 from drinking?

    What we don't have are immature 18 year olds buying beer for their friends or any one willing to pay money or favors who are under 18. Imagine your teenager going to a party where a fellow student is providing alcohol with no parental supervision.

    Though I was never a part of either program, we hadd M.A.D.D. posters and S.A.D.D (Students against Drunk Driving) posters hanging around my school. They never talked about it as far as I know so I'm not sure the point if it's never addressed.
