hell no. I think it should be 21. kids do stupid things with out alcohol. last thing they need is more. how about you concentrate on finishing school, there are plenty of years to come where you can piss it all up
The reason the legal age is 21 is because the brain has stopped developing by then. If too much alcohol is consumed before that age it can cause areas of your brain to stay undeveloped. America is already very low on the worldwide education scale. We dont need to go any lower.
Not at all. Drugs and alcohol are bad during the teenage years because it stunts the growth of the mind. A person should not start drinking until their mind has fully grown, which is between the early 20's and mid 20's.

No, 18 though, if you can die for your country, you should be able to drink. I could see 16 under parental supervision. Meaning if anything bad happens the parent should be held responsible, they should be there to stop any issues from occurring. I could swing 16, if we got our act together and handled alcohol like the Europeans do. They are just more responsible with it. Could be because they are exposed to it younger.
ABSOLUTELY NOT! At 16, you are still growing. At the age of 16, you are still considered a child. 16 year olds cannot handle the responsibility or consequences of alcohol consumption. If the legal drinking age is ever 16, Lord help us all. O.o
