I propose that the legal drinking age should be lowered from 21 to 18 in the U.S. It will take the "thrill" out of underage drinking, other countries have shown more stable laws to be effective, and because it is unlawful to let an adult do as they please.
Lowering the drinking age would make younger drinkers more responsible with alcohol, 18 year old's have the right to make their own decisions, and because the drinking age now is ineffective because teens will continue to drink regardless.
In comparison to European countries, the U.S lacks when it comes down to underage drinking responsibility. Countries in Europe start drinking young and learn to "respect" drinking and not abuse it.
If 18 year old's are old enough to make decisions about who's going to govern them, register themselves in the military, and be legally classified as an adult, who's to say they are not allowed to drink alcohol.
Teens all throughout America, specifically in college, are going to find a way to drink regardless. Having a 21+ rule will not stop it. And since it's illegal for them, they're most likely going to drink in sketchy places, making it more dangerous then it should be.
Since teens will find a way to get alcohol (and most likely be successful), as well as there being such a great example of European countries having stable drinking laws, as well as being 18 legally grants you the right to become an "adult", I see no reason to not lower the legal drinking age in the United States.
