    18 by law. 21 just because alcohol is served and they don't want to card twice.

    Re: Repealing the Drinking Age?

    A 20 year old man can earn the medal of honor and help defend our freedom, but not come home and enjoy a Miller in a bar. Not right.

    These guys can't ever enjoy a Miller in a bar. They also can't swear in public.

    No one can enjoy a Miller in a bar...there's no such thing as a Miller.

    Miller Lite, MGD, Miller 64, Miller High Life, Miller Chill, Miller Fortune....but no Miller.

    In Iowa I'm pretty sure it is 21 by law. You can't even buy a lottery ticket unless you are 21 can you? Places like Meskwaki are 18 because they don't fall under Iowa law.

    Back on topic. I'm OK with lowering the drinking age but I also think this country could benefit from an alcohol culture change. Too many people do things while drinking instead of drinking while doing things - if that makes any sense. In other words the drinking is the primary activity and the other things are secondary.

    Interesting point in that last line, however the abuse of alcohol isn't co-dependent on level of activity. As a high schooler with nothing else to do, I certainly abused alcohol much more due to the lack of anything better to do. After that, I probably drank more at sporting events than just hanging out with a few friends. Maturity plays a big role.

    But I've always been a social drinker. The whole drinking to get drunk thing was never really a goal of mine, even if that was the end result!

    Re: Repealing the Drinking Age?

    jbhtexas and CycloneErik are both non-drinkers who would probably prefer that there not be alcohol at all. That's not something that's going to happen since alcohol has been around as long as civilization, and whether they like it or not, many people have enriched their life with it. You can have a good life without it, but that doesn't mean that the government should force that on you.

    We aren't debating whether alcohol should exist or not; we're debating whether or not the 21 year old drinking age is a good thing for this country. Most people seem to think it isn't. The rest of the civilized world agrees.

    Better yet, don't keep it off school grounds. Arm every teacher with alcohol. Keeping it out of the hands of the good guys just makes it that much easier for the bad guys to win.

    Agree with the bolded. Because none of those Millers listed are enjoyable.

    Re: Repealing the Drinking Age?

    I honestly don't get how someone can actually support the drinking age being higher than 19. I'd like it at 18 but I understand why people want it at 19. 21 not so much.

    Re: Repealing the Drinking Age?

    Ehhh. It's fine where it is at 21. I could maybe get on board with 19, but there are more important things to worry about.
