Drinking Age

So now that you know what is happening I think we should change the drinking age to 24.....

Dear future president,

I have a problem to drinking age there is citizens around the world who taking drinking seriously at a certain age and time. The highest of drinking age is 21, it also leads to irresponsible underage drinking. Unsafe drinking is a prevalent issue among America's youth, it is something that I find concerning, and That I feel could have a solution. The current drinking age of 21 encourages youth to engage unsafe drinking because it is “fun and rebellious”, or if you are in college it is just something to do. Lowering the drinking age could lead to many potential benefits. Youth could feel more open about drinking responsibly. It could also eliminate the number of parties that involve underage drinking. Eighteen is a more realistic age to wait for to drink the twenty-one.

The whole country is using alcohol and beverages in a certain way. In parties there are people who buy lot’s and lot’s of beverages to one party. If you drink too much of it your body will shut down. These laws are very among different many countries and many laws have exemptions or special circumstances. Most laws apply only to drinking alcohol in public places, with alcohol consumption in the home being mostly unregulated ( an exception in the UK, which has a minimum legal age of five for supervised consumption in private places). Some countries also have different age limits for different types of alcoholic drinks. In other countries, it is not legal for minors to drink alcohol, but the alcohol can be seized without compensation. In some cases, it is illegal to sell or give alcohol to minors.
