Lowering the drinking age, I feel would be the best solution to solving the underground drinking problem, it would allow for drinking to be more “open.” Having the drinking age at 21 allows for there to me more difficulty in keeping track of the kids who use it because they do it secretly and tend to abuse it more. If the drinking age was lowered across the world, I think there would less binge drinking amongst the teens and would allow for the elders to have more control over the consumption of alcohol. Drinking at any age under 18 should not be allowed but once you turn 18 you should be allowed to drink legally. When one turns 18 they assume adult penalties, are allowed to vote, die for their country, and even get married. So why can’t they enjoy a few beers legally?
One of the major points against gun control is the violation of your second amendment rights, you have the right to keep and bear arms for personal protection. This paper will show there is no common sense in banning all firearms as a means gun control and it leaves law abiding citizens increasingly vulnerable to violent crimes. No Common Sense in Gun Control Over the past forty years, legislators have spent a lot of time, effort and revenue on legislation regarding gun control. Gun control advocates insist that increased gun control will lower the soaring crime rates of the early 70's. However, “recent research on the prevalence of defensive gun use has prompted growing concern that government efforts to regulate gun ownership and use may be counterproductive” (Ludwig, 2000, p. 363).
Should the Minimum Legal Drinking Age Be Lowered to 18? The debate over whether or not the legal drinking age should be lowered to 18 has still not been settled. For years, people have discussed the advantages and disadvantages to being able to legally consume alcohol at the age of 18 and still have not been able to come to an agreement. Some experts think the “solution is to lower the legal drinking age to 18” since you can fight for your country at the age of 18, you should be able to purchase and consume alcohol (Ogilvie). Others may argue that lowering the drinking age could produce negative results.
Other countries with low drinking ages do not have major health problems concerning alcohol and their young adults, thus proving alcohol is not necessarily unhealthy for developing young adults. The Federal Government should lower the legal drinking age to eighteen because citizens are treated as adults at eighteen so they are mature enough to vote, get married, go to war, and be prosecuted as adults so they should be able to buy alcohol. The law pushes students to drink in private places to avoid trouble, and with adults non-existent, inexperienced heavy drinking, assault, and sexual misconduct is far more likely to occur. Students find it very hard to get along with college faculty and police officers because of the harsh penalties students receive from them. Among young adults the high drinking age is a very unpopular law, thus faculty and police who are responsible for the enforcement the law become unpopular, creating animosity between students and their officials.
For example, a decrease in tax revenues, which can lead to a strong deficit in our country and the invasion of individual’s rights who choose to smoke. Several people argue that banning the consumption of cigarettes is the best solution for our country. However, could we possibly consider it to be the best solution if we are invading other people’s freedom? Do we not live in a free country? Yes, we do and that is why I believe that any individual should have the freedom to do as they pleased.
Kohlberg believes that in this stage young people lose some of their selfishness as they learn to define right and wrong in terms of what pleases parents and conforms to their cultural norms. (Macionis) The cultural norms in the United States should match those of most European countries when it comes to drinking alcohol. If the youths in America were taught the correct and responsible ways to drink alcohol there would be less alcohol related incidents in the future. Lowering the legal drinking age from 21 to 18
3/ alcohol advertising. TAG didn’t do much to advocate the advertising situation,they believe that the growth of alcohol consumption it is not linked to the advertising cmpaigns used by the alcohol companies compared to Eurocare that tries their best to discourage alcohol advertisements that target vulnerable groups such as children. 4/ countermeasures against drinking and
The importance of the blue ocean strategy is that it keeps companies looking for untapped markets, which will provide new goods and services for the consumer. A product or service that might be considered a blue ocean move can be as simple as mixing alcohol and energy drinks packaging them and selling to the public. Anheuser-Busch could do this as long as the energy drinks do not contain caffeine. Mixing alcohol and energy drinks is not a new idea, but in November of 2010 the Food and Drug Administration declared caffeine an illegal and unsafe additive to manufactured alcoholic beverages. So now breweries cannot manufactures energy drinks with alcohol.
To begin with, you are a first time driver; no matter what age you are, it is your first time learning and you have no experiance yet, so to start driving at 18 would be the same as if you were 16. In addition, instead of crash rates being ay 16- 25 it would be 18-27; it does not lower crash rates so you cannot blame the age because as said before, the driver is inexperianced, no matter what age they are. furthermore, not only is it unfair to the responsible teen driving, but to their parents to get them to and from school and work, they should not bee shofering their grown children everywhere they need to go, and what if they have jobs, which most parents have, they would probably be wasting a lot of time driving as well as spending large amounts of gas money. Moreover, if teenagers get an early start, it will give them a better chance to mature faster because learning how to drive takes a lot of responsibiltiy. They would have more years of practice, be street smart and even be more prepared for driving later on in life in case of an emergancy where the adult is not able to drive.
It is because it is illegal. If we are lowering the drinking age, will we be worse off because kids are used to binge drinking? Another issue is stress. When parents were growing up, they didn’t have the kind of stress kids are dealing with today. So why are so many teenagers stressed to succeed academically?
