Alcohol and drugs I don't understand the policies on. Who gives a **** if you wanna shoot up heroin? "Oh but it can kill you! If it doesn't it's bad for you!" So? So's cake, but you can buy that in the supermarket. If drugs were legal to be purchased that would put criminals who ell it out of business, because it can be bought legally.

Same with alcohol. 9/10 kids think alcohol tastes ******* disgusting when young, so they probably wouldn't drink it anyway. "But we don't want people drinking and driving!" It happens anyway with adults. Plus they drill that **** into your head for the first 18 years anyway.

TL; DR Who gives a **** if you wanna drink or do drugs? Only person you are hurting is yourself, and that's your choice if you wanna be a *******

Teens are already the leading in car fatalities... Adding legalization of 18 year old drinking is not a good mix to that

Most states you can drink before the age of 21, it has to be in the privacy of your own home. The federal law only applies to what age you can buy it and drinking outside your home.

Look it up ignorant ***** .

While you're mostly right, We're actually much older than Germany. Germany was just a cluster of tons of little states until the mid 19th century.

Neurological development continues until age 25 - mostly in the areas of reasoning and decision making. I know a lot of the legislation comes from that idea, that they don't want your already-inhibited decision making abilities hindered any further. Look at how many dumb ***** drink underage and go driving and other stupid **** . Stop being so closed minded and move somewhere else if you have such an issue. The comparison between a simple legal proceeding (marriage) and the legal possession (and therefore consumption) of a neurotoxin is null.

Although I drink underage every so often - I aint no cop.

Your brain isn't fully developed yet. Alcohol could impede that growth process.

ironic. i am a 20 year old currently drinking wine while reading this content. (my family believes if you are old enough to die for your country and are currently enlisted, you're old enough to drink im in the army )

i hear most military families let their young soldier, sailor, or what-have-you drink underage.

when enlisting, you have to say "no" for the whole "have you ever drank under age" questions even though 9/10 the person in the process of enlisting is lying and im sure the recruiters are aware of such. and you have high odds of being denied enlistment even if the state legal drinking age is lower 21 and you drank within your state's legal drinking age.

but even then when enlisted, people drink when under 21. they usually drink in their own homes though.
the legal age to purchase alcohol is 21 and that is a federal law. however, the drinking age is a law dictated by the state which is why you see states with drinking ages lower than 21 or the age is 21 but there are exceptions.
like wisconsin for example, to drink in public you need to be 21, but to drink underage you need to do it in a home and around someone 21 to be your drinking guardian.

TL;DR: the legal drinking age is different based on state since it is a state law, but the legal purchasing age of alcohol being 21 is federal. but for the military, the legal drinking age is 21 but people enlisted will drink underage anyways.

yes, I wasnt too clear about it, what I meant to do was prove op's point that it doesnt break down society if people get to drink at a younger age

Can't you also join the military at 18? So, they trust you with an assault rifle, but not with a glass of wine.

Yeah, you can't drink wine from a cup because that's dumb. You drink wine from a glass.

You shouldnt want or have children or be getting married at 18. And all states could make the legal drinking age 18 if they wanted to, they just get more government funding if it is 21. Theres actually the idea going around of making the age 18 again because the age of 21 was originally put into place to try to deter the amount of car accidents in teens due to drunk driving and Alas it hasnt really helped.
#22 - anonymous (08/21/2014) [-]
The logic behind it is that it ******* saves lives by punishing the **** out of immature teenagers before they even think about drinking and driving.
