There's others that have a opinion that the drinking age should be lowered to 18. Many of this reasons that i am going to talk about being why the drinking age should be lowered to 18. To start with many colleges and universities often argue that the legal drinking age should be 18 because outlawing alcohol consumption in the colleges for those under 21 has caused many serious problems in many campuses. These colleges and universities say that allowing alcohol consumption legally might help cut cut down many rapes and deaths of this college students who are binge drinking.

Therefore, in this paper I am going to explain and give reasoning as to why changing the legal drinking age of 21 to 25 can save the lives of young adults, give them a healthier lifestyle, help them be safer and live a longer more efficient life. According to Elements Behavioral Health, “If the drinking age were to be raised to 25, most students on campus would be underage, and as some hope, it could curtail the excessive drinking
According to the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism on average almost 60% of college students will engage in drinking alcohol. (National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism) This prevalence of underage drinking at college has given fraternities and sororities a very large reputation of being border line alcoholics. According to the Addiction Center 4 out of 5 fraternity and sorority members are binge drinkers compared to regular college students who average only 2 out of every 5. (Addiction Center)
A poll taken on July 2014 asked the public opinion of US adults for lowering the US legal drinking age from 21 to 18. Approximately 74% of the people opposed the idea, whereas roughly 25% of the people supported the idea ("Public Opinion" 1). The statistics indicate satisfaction among the majority of the people; however, with the current laws many issues arise that must be addressed concerning alcohol use. For starters, studies show an increase of dangerous drinking habits among young adults (Hall 2). In addition, the enforcement of the drinking laws and education on alcohol is insubstantial (Moyse, Fonder 3).
According to Main in ¨Underage Drinking and the Drinking Age” from the Policy Review, lowering the drinking age to eighteen from twenty-one would increase the harsh effects that are currently impacting our society and our military. Main insists that the United States should not get rid of the laws that set 21 as the mandatory minimum age for drinking, known as the ¨21 laws.¨ Although there are laws and severe consequences for those who drink under the age of 21, underage drinking is a huge concern, especially at college. When the undergraduates binge drink, drinking five or more alcoholic drinks on one occasion, they not only have the potential to hurt themselves, but also their peers. For example, over 474,000 students have unprotected sex,
To my understanding, AA is a fellowship composed of men and woman seeking a common goal to combat alcoholism through abstinence and the only requirement for AA membership is a desire to stop drinking. A recent study conducted by ________sought to discover what AA has to offer individuals with Alcoholism and how they perceive this twelve step program. Participants for this study included 187 respondents (36 females and 63 males) out of 500 invited to conduct an online survey. Invitations
Addictive Behaviors This study, “Heavy Episodic Drinking and its Consequences: The Protective Effects of Same-Sex, Residential Living-Learning Communities for Undergraduate Women” aims to find the impact the environment has on drinking and alcohol abuse. The areas of comparison are single-sex resident living communities, mixed sex residential learning communities, single sex non residential learning communities, and mixed non residential learning communities. This study can possible lead to a solution to underage drinking in colleges, if it is valid and significant. If it does not lead to a solution, it can still provide insight as to the overwhelming number of underage college students who drink.
(cite) Aside from college students, the drug is most commonly associated with young adults and children that struggle at maintaining focus or at staying awake at normal hours. Males are much more likely to be diagnosed with ADHD than females, and are responsible for the bulk of prescriptions being filled (cite). It should also be noted that the use of Adderall as a performance enhancing drug is spreading in the world of sports. Athletes are banned from using Adderall in Major League Baseball, the National Football League, the NBA, Major League Soccer, the NCAA and the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency. The 2012 National Football League (NFL) season can serve as an example after the record for most drug suspensions was broken, players failing tests for Adderall accounted for one-third of all suspensions that year (cite).
