In your opinion should the legal drinking age be lower then 21yrs? How about 18? In most states you are considered of age to drive a vehicle at 16, but not drink. Why is this? Should the driving age be raised? Maybe to 18 or 21? In other countries you can drink at 18, but can not drive at 16.

My opinion is, if you have your high school diploma (or equivalent), you can drink at 18. If not, then you have to wait until you're 21. It'll create an incentive to stay in school.

i believe if you are old enough to join the service then you should be able to drink.i think the driving age should be raised some of these kids today drive like they are on a race track.

Where I live drinking age is 18. I think that's about right.
