Solution to Underage Drinking It is a Friday night A group of seniors in high school are headed to a field party after a long week of school Before arriving they stop at a convenience store to buy some beer The clerk asks for their identification and one teenager uses a cheaply made fake id to purchase the alcohol The group gets to the party and drinks with their other thirty classmates until the function is busted up by the cops The cops check for designated drivers and tell everyone to go home without making any arrests The group of seniors are thankful to not be in trouble and go to sleep thinking about the party on Saturday US law states that the minimum drinking age is 21 Yet every weekend thousands of kids under this age are breaking this law The big question is why Yes some of these underage age drinkers buy alcohol because they like the taste or because they enjoy the feeling it gives them although they are not the majority The majority choose to drink because they think it looks cool or because they enjoy rebelling authority Department of Health and Human Services 163164 Throughout history people have always wanted what they could not have When applying this to alcohol the higher the drinking age the more people under this age are going to try and obtain it Lawmakers changed the minimum drinking age back in 1978 from 18 to 21 thinking that the older you are the more responsible you are Yet these lawmakers didnt take into account that responsibility comes with experience and teaching not just age The solution to less problems with alcohol does not lie with abstinence until the age of 21 but with teaching people how to drink responsibly at a younger age The US has the highest minimum drinking age in the world and only four other nations have minimums over 18Legal Drinking
