Do you think the drinking age should be lowered to 18?


Should the drinking age be lowered from 21 to 18? If an 18 year old is allowed to vote should they not be allowed all the freedoms we have in our nation? Is it fair that states can reduce the drinking age but will lose federal funding for their highways? And if the drinking age should not be lowered to 18 for everyone should it be at least lowered for those that serve in our armed forces?

    Are you saying more courageous people should be immune from the law? Why not 18 year old cops then? Or firefighters for that matter? How about emotionally courageous people like teens with disabilities? Your logic is erroneous and biased.

    The consequences are not always theirs alone. Others lives are lost, many children.

    There is no correlation between drinking and the war zone except that we expect our 18 year olds to be mature enough to fight and die for our country, but not mature enough to drink an alcoholic beverage. I just believe you cannot have this both ways
