I believe a heightened drinking age would definately not stop underage drinking Mainly due to the fact that it is considered acceptable in our society already Drinking unlike drugs is considered acceptable in todays society It is even considered a right of passage when a person first begins drinking I have witnessed this myself It is considered humorous when a person is drunk rather than disturbing This action can often lead to alcoholism when the person is finally legal to drinkSince alcohol was first discovered it has been a key part in every society Just about every country even has their own national alcoholic beverage I do not think any law can have any influence on a society where alcohol is so ingrained within itself For instance the prohibition imposed during the twenties in the US Although alcohol was illegal it still remained in use Probably because society viewed it as acceptable A drinking age of twenty one would not curb underage drinking it would make it more rampant If you consider most teens will start drinking at the age of sixteen and then add 18 19 and 20 year olds into the mix A heightened drinking age would also use up valuable police resources enforcing the law If a higher drinking age was put in place it would increase theft and bootlegging You also have to examine society as the cause to underage drinking Children see their parents drinking their are commercials on television even some cartoons for children have drinking references in them National pride is now even associated with drinking For instance the other day i even saw a cooking show that was sponsored by the MLCCThe solution to under aged alcohol abuse is to educate young adults in how to drink responsibly Current alcohol education in high school and college is set to discourage drinking instead of educating people to drink responsibily The problem isnt that alcohol is too readily available
