The U.S. Drinking age

when it comes to drinking there are a lot of people out there that feel that the higher the legal age for drinking is better. unfortunately, to some degree this is a misguided train of thought.

people have to remember part of the problem with underage drinking is the actual maturity of the individual not the general age group as a whole. what also has to be remembered is that regardless of the legal drinking age there will always be people looking to skirt the law and the only thing that actually changes is the age group involved in skirting the law.

with regards to college aged students showing symptoms of alcohol dependence, some of those individuals regardless of age are probably those who have the needed physical or emotional traits that permit the problem to take hold.

we also have to learn that when the Constitution states that these people are legal adult we have to stop treating them as children that we have to protect by forcing an artificial milestone to achieve based partially not being ready to let them learn what it means to be an adult for themselves.
