    I agree. The drinking age should correspond with the age of majority, because people who are legal adults should not be denied any of the privileges of legal adulthood.

    If you can vote and join the military at 18, you should be able to drink and smoke at 18.
    The best argument against democracy is a five-minute conversation with the average voter.

    If you can die for your country in a foreign war, then you should atleast be able to drink alcohol.

    I'm against Alcohol, at best it will be allowed at 25 or later.How many kids have destroyed their bodies and souls with early drinking of alcohol!

    that's not alcohol's fault, it's the parent's fault.

    What's so special about foreign wars? You can die for your country at any age once the war's on your doorstep.

    Re: Should the drinking age be lowered?

    I believe it should be legal for a 16-year-old to drink beer or wine, in the presence of their parents. 18 for purchasing beer/wine on their own. I think our puritanistic ideas about drinking are half the problem. I think teenagers should be taught, by their parents, to be responsible drinkers, rather than learning with their peers where binging is the norm.

    I'm against lowering the drinking age. I dont feel our social attitude towards alcohol is mature enough to handle younger kids drinking.
