College is a big step and an even bigger transition. Again, like said many times, there is underage drinking on college campuses, and that problem is one of the hardest to regulate. How does a cop know whether or not everybody at the party that is bumping down the street is underage? And not to mention it would take hours to ask everybody at that party to pull out their I.D's and prove their innocence, or worse their guiltiness.
Although many support lowering the MLDA 21 law, many are also very passionate about keeping the age at 21. The Drug-Free Action Alliance created an astonishing argument to keep the MLDA 21. They go into all of the aspects many of the pro MLDA 18 do not touch. The Drug-Free Action Alliance talks about how alcohol effects the brain of a young adult. They also discuss the fact that the earlier young adults drink the more likely they will be alcoholics in the future.
If you believe that the MLDA 21 law should be lowered to 18, there is a petition you can sign and help show the officials that is really what America wants. Get your voice heard, and earn the respect you truly deserve.
