DO you think drinking should be legal at age 18?!

Question: DO you think drinking should be legal at age 18!?
I do!!!!!Www@FoodAQ@Com

YES!!!its dumb if we can go to jail,serve our country!.we should be able to drink!and im sorry but i dont think most adults are responsible enough!.and were gonna do it anyway!.if wasnt illegal there wouldnt be the problems we have!.and im more responible than my 21yr old sister!.trust me on that oneWww@FoodAQ@Com

Hell no, I used to bartend and the under age kids that would get in to the bar which was on a military post, and had either brought in drinks or had someone of age buy them drinks,

Always started fights, each and every time there was a fight it was the cause of a 18 year old kid!. So many fights that they ended up shutting down the club!.

I even think some 21 year olds are too young!. With that being said, there was a reason they raised the age in the first place!. Www@FoodAQ@Com

I don't think many young people are traveling all the way to Canada just to drink!. It's embarrassingly easy for U!.S!. college students to get fake ID's made, and that's happening all the time!.

I think it should be lowered but properly regulated and existing drinking-related laws more strictly enforced!. There should be zero tolerance for anyone to get behind the wheel of the car while legally intoxicated, and the penalties for violating the law should reflect that!. Www@FoodAQ@Com

There will be innocent deaths at any given point, with drinking or no drinking!. Teenagers these days are drinking under the age of 18, I know I did!. The drinking age should be 18, but the driving privilege should be issued only at 21, that should make it fair!. Drink all you want, just cant drive at all!.
Best of luck!


I'm sure 90% of the people who say it should be are under 21 years old!

I do think any one who is enlisted!.!.!.or has been should be able to drink!.!.as for the others NO WAY

My dad was hit by a 19 year old drunk boy and He has a permanent dent in the top of his head where it was crushed now!.!.!.He was almost killed!. Most 18 year old's are not responsible enough for drinking!. Drunk driving is a serious issue!. Its ridiculous to think a senior in high school can drink legally!. I my self went through 6 long painful months of physical therapy after being hit by someone just shy of their 20th birthday who was so drunk they couldn't stand to do a field subriety test!!.!.!.do you know painful it is to have your lumbar muscles in your back torn!? do you know how hard I worked to rebuild them!. I am 21 years old and some days can barely pick up my 7 month old because its so painful!. Don't try and tell me a child is responsible to legally drink!! Www@FoodAQ@Com

no it shouldn't!. i live in germany and here alcohol is one of the biggest problems!. it's allowed to buy beer, wine and stuff when your 16!. alcohol like vodka, liqour with 18!. i am 15 but i can get every sort of alc!. in germany flatrat - drinking is very popular!. you pay some money and can drink as much as u want!. last year a friend of mine died - with 16!. he drank 60 tequila!. he fell in coma and then he died!. it was in the news for weeks!. and since its well known that the german teenagers do "coma drinking"!. i think its better when you can alcohol when you're old enough!. because i have problems with drinking too !.!.!. so be carefull!.

greets from good ol' germanyWww@FoodAQ@Com

I don't think it should be legal at age 18, but maybe age 19!. If it's 18 then it's more accessible to the high school age group, but there should be one set age for adults for drinking, military, voting, etc!. that i think should be 19!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

absolutely!.!.!.!.!.!.!.!.but only in a bar, no packaged liqour!. Kids have other people to watch their consumption in a bar, and to curb unacceptable behavior such as fighting and agression!. It's hate to pick a fight with a cast on and a black and blue face!.

I feel your pain!!!

When I was 18 I thought the drinking age should be 18 too!.

Now, I have a 17 year old daughter and I think the drinking age should be 40 (I'm 41)!.!.!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

I think it should!. it's legal in Canada so it should be legal in the States too!. That way young Americans don't come to Canada just to drink!.Www@FoodAQ@Com


I would be terrified if a bunch of KIDS were allowed to purchase alcohol - most of them are too irresponsible!. they would kill people

19 or 20 is better but we should make all things legal at the same ageWww@FoodAQ@Com

No there would be to many innocent deathsWww@FoodAQ@Com

if you think this girl's question is full of sH1t, say "I"!.Www@FoodAQ@Com
