Drinking Age

Drinking Age

Most people when they are 21 have already had a few drinks in their life and they realize what their limit is. If the drinking age were to be lowered back to he age of 18, there would be a lot more underage drinking because alcohol would be easier to access. Drinking is definitely a privilege just like driving a car.

They could change the law to saying that purchasing alcohol as a minor is illegal but the consumption of alcohol is not illegal. The law for cigarettes isn?t even as harsh as the one I just mentioned. It states that as a minor it
