    Well if people are responsible with their drinks then I don't see any problem with a lower age limit, and people are always gonna drink underage regardless. What's needed is the right culture, not the right age limit- look at southern Europe, where the drinking ages are typically around 16-18, but they don't have any huge problems with binge drinking (except by tourists).

    I agree with Napalmbrain. I'm a responsible kid. I have a 4.0 average in school (thats an A), help around the house and keep a job. I don't see why on Friday nights I can chill and enjoy some brew. My mom has a negative sentiment towards drinking because her dad died of alcoholism.

    In all irony, I've been caught smoking pot before too and she was more mad about the alcohol....

    and to all you who've been whipped I feel you. I'm Indian-American and us Indians are never shy of the belt or backhand hahah

    And you're suggesting that the United States can change its culture and become more responsible as quickly as we can get the age limit changed?

    The U.S. doesn't change. I am one of those pessimists that believes that alcohol will always be abused, if not by the masses then by a significant portion. I don't know how one can assume that a reduction in the age limit will spark an epiphany in the (ir)responsible nature of Americans, if that was what you were suggesting. Otherwise, I don't know what exactly you're suggesting.

    Never been grounded, is a lame form of putting kids in line IMO.
    All parents have to do is act disappointed. Child will never do a bad thing again.

    I'm not saying American teenagers will suddenly become responsible drinkers overnight, but all cultures can change over time. But it's not going to happen if America continues to be prude about it- the view of alcohol as a cool, forbidden drink just makes teenagers want it even more. Besides, my view is that if you're old enough to vote, smoke, have sex, and join the army, you old enough to drink.

    If you can go to war and lose an arm for your country, the least thing your country can do is let you buy a cold beer.

    and drinking depends on the person. You cannot lump nationalities together as one person and expect them to have similar patterns when it comes to drinking.

    Plenty of people abuse alcohol, I am not disregarding this fact, and Levesque is right when it comes to teenagers. Most are ignorant, dangerous and irresponsible when it comes to their use of alcohol. I would love to pinpoint it on one reason, but I can't. People are individuals. However,The stupid individuals ruin it for the responsible kids as myself.

    Lowering the drinking age would clear our prisons for real criminals and relocate the use of tax dollars on useful things such as developing infrastructure instead of putting stupid kids in Juvenile Detention.
