Should the legal drinking age be increased or decreased?
In the UK, to buy alcohol you must be over 18, but there are strict rules where you will be asked to show ID if you look under 25. The legal drinking age is hazy, as it is meant to be okay for a minor to have a glass of wine at home with their family but not out in a pub or restaurant. It's something I might check up on actually.... I think the law is fine as it is. It shouldn't be increased because by 18 or 21, you are an adult and should be treated like one. The curiosity of alcohol causes problems among youngsters. In other countries like Spain and Italy, families drink together socially, and the enigma is taken away. You get less yob style behavior in bars because of it. It's all about attitude and the individual person, and how they deal with the amount they drink.
It's 21 here in the United States and I think it should be lowered to 18 only because if you're allowed to vote for your country's president, join the army and be considered an adult, then you should be allowed to drink.
In the US, it should be lowered. The law says you're responsible enough to buy a house, get married, vote, and die for your country at 18 -- but you're not responsible enough to buy alcohol? Am I missing something here?
