Do you think legal drinking age should be lowered from 21 to a younger age?

  • In many other countries the drinking age is 18.

    If you can make adult decisions and are considered as an adult, then why the hell can't you drink until 21?

    I was born and raised in the USA but my family is from Trinidad where the drinking age is 18. Nothing is different between either country in terms of negative effects of alcohol consumption, so it just comes down to the USA's puritanical roots being excessively restrictive.

  • No. it might seem like a good idea to kids who want to be drunk but honestly developmentally it's better to just wait. but ya know what, people will do what they want to do regardless of what health and science say.

  • It's 18 in my country, and I think that's fine for us.

    21 seems very arbitrary to me. But the US has a bigger problem with young people drink driving than the UK does. Over here, it's mainly a problem with the older generation, and I'm told it's the opposite over there.

  • Well, the brain is not fully developed until age 21 apparently so in that case no... but are we really going to trust 18 yr olds to drink? They do it already lmao at parties and stuff especially at PAP (prom after party)

  • You should be able to drink at any age you like, let the evolution takes its course.

  • It, in my opinion, doesn't need to be lowered. I don't see enough benefits for a change to take place.

  • yes it should be lowered to 18 because if you are considered an adult at 18 then you should be able to drink

    In Australia and all of European countries legal drinking age is 18 and there is nothing wrong with it.

  • No, keep it at 21. It is better. I think it should be like 25 or 26 since there would be very little damage to the development of the person consuming the alcohol, (but the people who drink alcohol aren't necessarily the smartest anyway) so it should be left at 21 in my opinion.

  • Yup. I think it should be 18. Why is it that 18 is old enough to go to war, but not old enough to drink? It's 18 basically everywhere else anyway.
