Should the legal drinking age be 21 as it is right now or should it be lowered as it once was to 18 It used to be 18 before the years between 1970 and 1980 This is easily discussed among college students most of which are under the legal drinking age As I was discussing this issue with fellow students I heard many responses from different ages Some said that they were okay with the current law besides if they wanted alcohol they could get it easily Others were stating that the age should go back to 18 The arguments for the legal drinking age at 21 where it is now is supported with many sources on the World Wide Web and in print articles One statement that kept rising is that many 18-year-olds are still in high school when they are 18 and they also come in close contact with 15-17 year olds Parker 69 The individual state laws vary because there is no federal law for the minimum drinking age Currently all states have a minimum legal drinking age of 21 The way the federal government encouraged states to raise the drinking age to 21 is to withhold a portion of Federal-aid highway funds Advocates Fact I personally see the reasoning behind the minimum drinking age being 18 I feel that the drinking age should be 18 not because I would be able to buy alcohol legally but because since people can serve in the armed forces and die for their country they should be able to This doesnt make sense Many states have the law which keep minors from buying alcohol but it doesnt specifically state anything about drinking it A call for So there are some loopholes in states laws It is also easy for someone my age to buy alcohol with a fake ID or by knowing the clerk who in most cases is a friend In college almost everyone
