Persuasive writing- America should lower the drinking age to 18 at least.

Extracts from this document...


´╗┐In the United States there are many activities you can do at age 18, like join the military, vote, be a stripper, p**n 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. If the drinking age were lowered, the number of alcohol related accidents and crimes committed by teens would drop. The number one reason why teens drink is to rebel by breaking the law. ...read more.

Screw the congress of what they think for a minute and think about for at least a second?.. Teens at age 18 are allowed to kill someone, take care of themselves, and show their n**e body?s, but they can?t even pick up a can of beer? Common that?s ridiculous. If you are allowed to kill some at age 18, you should be allowed to drink alcohol at a lower age to at least 18. ...read more.
