Lower the Drinking Age
The drinking age needs to be lowered to 18 for many reasons. The drinking age is way too high at 21. More underage drinking goes on than any other kind anyway so why not just change it. There is many reasons for changing it to 18.
There are many 18 year olds in iraq right now fighting for our country and sacrificing their lives for us. So you mean to tell me the government will let 18 year olds fight and die for us but are not allowed to cossume alcohol? That is unfair and needs to be changed.
At 18 you’re considered an adult and you are responsible for your own actions. I am 18 and there are many responsibilities I have to deal with in my life. I have a responsibility to my parents, to get fgood grades because they are the ones paying for my education. I also play football and that takes a lot of hard work and dedication. I am dorming and this is my 1st time living outside the house, which also puts a lot of pressure on me as well. I have to make money to support myself while still getting good grades and playing football.
With all of these pressures that many 18 years old face, I don’t think its right that the government will not allow us to cossume alcohol in order to take our minds off that pressure. You are also allowed to purchase tobacco at the age of 19, which is considered a drug, but still are not allowed to purchase alcohol.
The drinking age laws are unfair and unreasonableand I believe it needs to be brought down to 18. If 18 year olds can fight and die for their country they should be able to have a drink also. Wqe have a lot of pressures and responsibilities in life and sometimes its good to just have a drink and take your mind off of the everyday pressures most are faced with.
