Extracts from this document...

Introduction

´╗┐In the United States there are many activities you can do at age 18, like join the military, vote, be a stripper, porn star, adopt a child, but there is one thing you can?t do. You have to wait until the age of 21 to drink alcohol. There are worst things you can do at age 18 than drink at that age. America should lower the drinking age to 18 at least.

Teens at age 18 are allowed to kill someone, take care of themselves, and show their nude body?s, but they can?t even pick up a can of beer? Common that?s ridiculous.
