Lower the Drinking Age sign now

Whereas a person in the United States is considered a minor under the age of 18 and an adult above such age

Whereas as an adult in the United States is allotted all his/her rights according to the United States Constitution, including those inherent and implied

Whereas among these rights are the right to vote, to enlist in the military, and to consume tobacco

Whereas every male United States citizen is required by law to register with the Selective Service at the age of 18

Whereas registration with the Selective Service places one in a position where he may be drafted by the United States Armed Forces if and when the draft is again needed and placed into effect

Whereas adults between the ages of 18 and 20 do still consume alcohol within the United States

Whereas adults between the ages of 18 and 20 cannot legally, according to Title 23, Section 158 of the United States Code, purchase nor consume alcohol in a properly controlled and maintained facility currently

Whereas the former provides that adults between the ages of 18 and 20 therefore often drink heavily or binge drink when an opportunity arises to drink

Whereas this occurs primarily at parties unmonitored by mature drinkers, thus resulting in a higher percentage of serious accidents and occurrences of drunk driving

Whereas an important part of the college years of life is to learn to make and to make important career connections and prepare for a career following graduation

Whereas Title 23 Section 158 of the United States Code coerces States to maintain a 21-year-old minimum drinking age via the penality of otherwise not providing Highway funds

Whereas the undersigned do not encourage heavy drinking

Whereas the undersigned readily denounce drunk driving

Whereas the undersigned are in favor of stricter consequences for drunk driving

Whereas the undersigned are in full support of providing better public transportation

Whereas the undersigned recognize that they will likely be near or above the age of twenty-one years by the time this is changed

Let it be resolved, analogous to the aforementioned renouncing of heavy drinking by the undersigned, that Title 23 Section 158, National minimum drinking age, of the United States Code be amended such that it allows an adult between the ages of 18 and 20 to purchase and consume up to one pint of beer or up to one full glass of wine

Let it be further resolved that Title 23 Section 158, National minimum drinking age, of the United States Code be further amended to allow a minor to publicly consume up to twelve ounces of beer or up to half a glass of wine provided supervision and permission of said minors legal guardian.
