Such a bad idea. As if high school parties aren't bad enough already with them trying to hide their drinking. This is they way I look at it, the legal drinking age is 21, which is when you are in college, now there are some 21 year olds who will buy alcohol for people underage. Now they draw the line at certain ages because of realizing it would be dumb to give alcohol to kids that are to young, or they are giving it to their younger siblings. Okay, lets say their younger sibling is 4 years younger than them, at 21 that makes the kid 17, now we move the drinking age to 18 and suddenly they can buy alcohol for their 14 year old sibling. That being said most 18 year olds are seniors in high school, which means they go to high school events where most of the kids are under 18, meaning there will be an even higher chance of younger kids drinking since it will be more easily accessible if their classmates can get it legally. Also your brain matures so much more from 18 to 21, at 21 hopefully you will know when to stop, 18 year olds won't.
Let's just say if they lower the drinking age we will see a lot more people getting caught drinking underage and a lot more alcohol poisoning. It's just a bad idea. Coming from someone underage.0
