I think that the more contraband that you make, the higher the crime rates become. most people have their first experience with alcohol well before the age of even 18 regardless of what the law is. I live in a country where the legal drinking age is 18. they considered raising it to 21 a couple of years back but that was precisely the reason why they didn't. considering too that the USA has the highest number of incarcerated persons per capita, I think that changes like the decriminalisation of marijuana and lowering the drinking age would do wonders to changing that statistic.

I think it should be 21. I believe the driving should be increased to 18 or 21 as well. Most countries have set their driving age minimum to be 18 and it's just right since 16 is not responsible enough to be driving yet.

Of course the kids will say yes but no. it shouldn't.

Lowering it will not be a good idea. Keep it at 21. We waited that long, kids nowadays should just wait as long. It's only fair. Even at 21, people won't be responsible drinkers, what more younger kids.

Hmmm... it's probably not a wise decision to do. Kids are not really responsible drinkers at age 21 so I'm afraid to know how they'll be if you lower the drinking age. Keep it as is America.

definitely not. I would vote for a higher drinking age like 25.

I think they should keep it at 21. Kids maybe capable of doing a lot of things now but they are by no means responsible enough to handle drinking.

Definitely not.

People are going to find ways to drink anyway, regardless of what the legal drinking age is changed to. Maybe making it younger would do more good, than it would to make the age higher?

I agree. The drinking age because kids will find a way to get liquor. They should make a bill so they consequence for underage drinking would be severely punished.

I agree. Stricter consequences should be in place to deter kids from obtaining alcohol illegally.

Probably not. Keep it as is.

If I were younger I would say yes but knowing what I know now - I'd say no. I'd vote to increase it if possible to 25 maybe.

I believe the kids nowadays are mature enough compared to kids their age 10-20 years ago. If they are old enough to drive, I think they are old enough to drink.

Are you serious? They shouldn't start drinking when they're just getting used to how to drive

This is not logical. Combining a newbie driver with a newbie drinker is so not a good idea.
