The drinking age should be 21. Drinking alcohol in your teen years canaffect your health. People who start drinking under the age of 15 most likely become alcoholics. When you're 21 you most likely have a better head on your shoulders than you did in high school.

Hope that answers your question! ;)

I believe that an 18 year old should be able to vote, here are my reasons: One if we are aloud to join the army we should be allowed to vote for the person we are fighting for and for who controls our nation.

Two I don't think it matters that we are not as smart or intelligent as twenty one year olds I think it matters that at the age eighteen we become adults and we are just as well developed as any other adult would be.

My last reason would be that age should not be counted as a primary factor. A eighteen year could be as smart as a twenty one year old and that age does not matter, you cant tell if someone is smart of dumb just by their looks.

Doing so drives drinking "underground" into locations where there is no societal control or restraining influence on consumption and it tends to become excessive.
