Vermont to Lower Drinking Age?

The legal drinking age in the U.S. has been 21 years of age for over two decades, but that may change if lawmakers in several states have their way. In the Green Mountain state of Vermont, a committee of the State Senate has approved a bill that will allow a task force to consider the issue and make a recommendation to the Legislature on whether or not to lower the legal drinking age from 21 to 18. Some of the arguments in favor of lowering the drinking age are that 18 to 20 year-olds are allowed to die for their country in a war, but are not allowed to drink. It?s also argued that the higher drinking age hasn?t kept young people from consuming alcohol and has instead driven underage consumption underground, particularly on college campuses.


"I'm cool with it so long as they don't put a cap on the age limit, lord forebid if I have to stop drinking at a certain age."
