    The drinking age must be lowered to 18 along with education and licensing. If the prison official only gave alcohol to those 18 and over, then his charges would be reasonable only if they’re not excessive so they need to be moderate. The ageist drinking of 21 is doing wrong to people whose ages are 18-20 because although they are adults, they are not taught about how to consume alcohol responsibly. The age of 21 shouldn’t be used for any minimum age because using 20 would be more logical since it’s the first number in the 20s.

    Edwin, please help me out. Are you serious about this and anything else that you post, or are you having a laugh at our expense?

    Edwin, please be serious about this. You could be a huge asset to our cause. Or a liability. It’s your choice.
