Cyprus Drinking Age 18 College Parties in frat houses Vote 18 11 REASONS Reason 1 An 18 year old in US has the right to vote, and serve in the military. If an 18 year old can make up their mind as to who the potential leader of the country should be and take a bullet for their country, they should have every right to purchase and drink alcohol. Reason 2 It is usually said that an 18 year old has less tolerance as compared to a 21 year old. Although this might be true, in most cases you don’t really know how much you can handle as long as you try it out. Tolerance doesn’t come with age, tolerance come with realization of responsibility and there are people that are more responsible at 15 than some are at 50. Reason 3 Anyone under 21 sees alcohol as a “forbidden fruit.” The curiosity leads to more people under the age of 21 drinking anyway. If drinking is made legal for the 18 and older, it will serve much better as the curiosity isn’t as high and the fruit isn’t forbidden anymore. Reason 4 When in college most students under the age of 21 can get hold of drink through their seniors. They are not allowed to drink at events where others might be able to drink. This once again makes them want to be a rebel and try out what it is they are being kept away from. They will give it a shot. The fact that they don’t know when they will be able to drink again is the reason most college students tend to get overly drunk when they get a chance. As a result there are problems as serious as deaths. Reason 5 Countries such as Italy, China, Greece are some of the countries where the legal drinking age is lower and they seem to have fewer alcohol related problems. Reason 6 When drinking is made legal for anyone under the age of 21 and over 18, drinking takes place in public. It can then be supervised more easily. Reason 7 Colleges and Universities often argue that the legal drinking age should be 18 because outlawing alcohol consumption in colleges for those under 21 is making the problem worse. These colleges and universities say that allowing alcohol consumption legally might help cut down alcohol related deaths in colleges Reason 8 People under the age of 21 tend to drink more when they get hold of alcohol because of the uncertainty as to when they might be able to drink again Reason 9 An 18 year old is considered an adult and can be tried in court if he makes false judgement and commits a crime. So an 18 year old is capable of making every other decision as an adult but is incapable of making a decision whether or not they should drink? The 21 year old age limit for alcohol consumption sounds somewhat hypocritical Reason 10 If you are legal to get married at the age of 18 and end up getting married, you are not allowed to drink in your own wedding. Therefore the drinking age would be appropriate to be at age 18 Reason 11 Drinking under the age of 21 is seen by most 18 years and older as a sign of adulthood. They are allowed to do everything else and call themselves an adult and they don’t want to be stopped from being an adult when it comes to drinking. Research Drinking at the age of 18 in controlled environments would be appropriate . . . such as restaurants Taverns and Pub Official School + University Functions Why Though ? responsible drinking should be taught thru thr tho through role modeling and educational programs
