Should The Drinking Age Be Lowered To 18? [Poll]

The debate about lowering the drinking age to 18 has been raging for years. For the most part, the minimum drinking age is 21, but there are some provisions that vary from state to state about the consumption of alcohol under the age of 21. The debate received new life the other day when Hunger Games star, Josh Hutcherson was very publically vocal about his belief on lowering the drinking age to 18. Hutcherson said, “I think the age to go to war is 18…so I think the drinking age should be 18 as well.”

It is interesting to note that that in this country, you can fight and die for your country in the military and you can vote to choose our nation’s leaders, but you cannot make the decision to have a beer. Some would argue that the issue is not quite that simple.

Some experts believe alcohol realted traffic accidents and fatalities would skyrocket if the age were lowered to 18 and some say the problem would not be any worse than it is right now.

There are many, many points that could be made to argue either side of this issue, but the real question is, where do you come down on this issue?
