Seeing as I've had a lot of free time with my family recently, I've heard some interesting viewpoints on topics of discussion.
Here's some food for thought on the drinking age:
If I'm a legal adult, and I can enlist for the army or be tried as an adult, should I not be treated like an adult and have all the perks of adulthood (i.e, drinking)?I may have slightly reworded it, but you get the idea. What my brother was saying is that if 18 year-olds are treated like an adult in some ways, they should be an adult overall. That if they can have jury duty, they should be able to drink.
Another point on why the drinking age should be lowered:
Increasing the drinking age has not been effective in preventing college kids from drinking. There are still 21 year-olds in college, and they just pass along the alcohol.So what do you think now?
