    Around that age high school students are working hard to transition into the high-pressure freshman year at college. They have enough stress as it is. If legal drinking age were lowered it definitely will be abused on the account relaxing or taking a break from a tough year at college. Why do we want to introduce a practice where a good deal of judgment is necessary..

    Many times I have thought that it was unfair to allow a child to enter the military at 18, be able to vote at 18 and become an adult at 18 but not be allowed to drink until 21.  But I do no think dropping the drinking age to 18 is a good idea

    Yes I think they should. If 18 year olds are able to die for their country, than they should be able to drink also.

    Where I grew up the drinking age was 21. We drove across the state line into Kansas where the drinking age was 18 for 3.2 beer. I would have to say that this slowed down my progress in life. I would have to say that stronger alcohol might have done more damage than was done.
       My father once told me that (with my children) I should establish perimeters   that are smaller than what  in reality  I would be satisfied if they stayed in.
       So in this regard, I would have to say no hard liquor until age of 21.
