    The more debate, the better because with the debates, solutions will be found to prevent alcohol abuse. I also support lowering the drinking age to 18 because the current law is ineffective in preventing alcohol abuse and the current law is also an intrusion on the age of majority and of the 21st amendment. Don’t forget to comment on every entry you read.

    America needs to stop viewing alcohol as taboo and start viewing it as a food stuff, like the French and Italians. Parents should be allowed to teach their children properly about the responsibilities of alcohol with out fear of persecution. People don’t magically become adults over night they need guidance. There is a phase in one’s life, during your teenage years, when one is in between child and adult. This is when we should be teaching these young adults about the hazards and pleasures of wine, beer etc. The age of 18 should be a rite of passage where one is permitted all of the responsibilities of an adult not just a few. The teenage years leading up to the 18th birthday is the time in which parents should be getting their kids ready for adulthood. End modern day prohibition lower the drinking age to 18.
