In the United States it is illegal to consume alcohol until the age of twenty-one At the age of eighteen a person can get married vote drive take out loans pay taxes buy tobacco and be in the armed forces and die for their country Yet that person still can not drink alcohol In many other countries the drinking age is lower It is imperative that the drinking age be lowered to the age of eighteenThe drinking age must be lowered to the age of eighteen because this age would be consistent with other responsibilities that the government grants eighteen-year-olds For instance at the age of eighteen a person is liable to be in the armed forces If a person is being trusted to fight or even possibly die for their country it seems a lot less crucial to trust them with an alcoholic beverage To add to the fact of dying for their country these people are being counted on to kill other humans This seems unreasonable that a person is liable to take on an adults job that involves the future of the country and still be unable to enjoy an activity that other adults are allowed to participate in If one can be expected to kill and die for their country then they have the maturity to look at alcohol as a social activity to interact with peers and adults and not as a way to alter their conscience In addition people fresh out of high school are bombarded by many financial institutions such as Wells Fargo and Bank of America These companies are offering them Visa and Master Cards with up to 25 annual percentage rates APR How is someone with no credit history and little or no income supposed to take such huge financial responsibilities They are expected to be able to take on this burden yet they still can not buy a six pack to get their mind
