    Re: changing the drinking age

    I feel it should be changed to 18. Many states had it at 18 however the federal government created ruling that while it was still the right of a state to set it's own drinking age, the federal government could cease funding of transportation services to any state which did not have the age which the federal government endorsed. Some states held out for a bit, but without federal funding they were losing a lot of money fast and eventually followed suit. This is why the drinking age is 21 all over the country.

    Again I feel the age should be lowered on the sole fact that at the age of 18 you can choose your leader and you can serve and die for your country. If you can hold a gun and kill in your nation's name, you should be allowed to drink it out of your mind like all the other soldiers.

    I believe that there are still a few states that have the drinking age at 18.

    Since it was raised to cut down on the number of deaths from drunk drivers I support the current age and do not want to see it lowered again.

    I think it should stay the same, although I do agree with your reasoning. Drinking is very serious, and should be available to people who have had adult responsibilities for a few years. However, most 18 year olds drink anyway, I know I did.

    Re: changing the drinking age

    While I agree with you about the apparent Constitutional contradiction, you must remember that the human brain does not finish developing until after age twenty. Minors may be able to stave off the effects of drinking (i.e., hangovers), but the chemicals of the alcohol lead to a higher rate of chronic alcoholism later in life. Drinking in moderation is fine for almost anyone, but people - especially teenagers - have the uncanny habit of biting off more than they can chew (or sip more than they can drink, I should say). This would undoubtedly lead to an increase in the number of accidents caused by drunk driving, alcohol poisoning, etc. Therefore, I believe that the drinking age should remain at twenty-one.
