Underage Drinking Young Adults
627 wordsWhy has America had so many problems with underage drinking? I think that there is way too much underage drinking by young adults in America. On the other hand, I dont believe that it is their fault. I feel, that the lawmakers should lower the drinking age. The National Minimum Drinking Age Act of 1986 forces states to enforce the legal age of 21 years old or lose matching highway funds.

It is considered humorous, when a person is drunk, rather than disturbing. This action can often lead to alcoholism when the person is finally legal to drink. Sinc...
