"I think that the age should be lowered, but you'd have to have an IQ test, background check, and a test on the effects of being intoxicated."
"I think that lowering the drinking age will just influence even younger people to drink illegally."
"The drinking age should be 16 and the driving age 18 so that teens get used to drinking responsibly before they can drive."
"I think that if you can go and fight for your country you should be able to buy and drink alcohol."
"I think the drinking age should be lowered because it would take the fire away from the teens that drink to defy the law. Several of my friends go out and drink to rebel against the law. If the drinking age was lowered, then it would take away their reason to go out and drink."
"Parents teach their kids how to drive. They take them out and show them how to drive responsibly. If the drinking age was lowered, parents could show their kids a responsible way of drinking."
