Lowering the Drinking Age to 18

In recent time, the talk about lowering the drinking age from 21 to 18 has surfaced. This topic has both its pros and cons, but when it comes down to it, which is the wiser solution? The unfortunate part about if the drinking age was lowered to 18, would be all the alcohol related deaths and injuries. The positive side is that if taught right, many 18 year olds would not drink irresponsibly, nor put their lives in danger under the consumption of alcohol. I believe that the earlier the better, because over time you would learn how to control your alcohol consumption. If the drinking age does end up being lowered to 18, many parents and adults will have to teach their kids what to do and what not to do when under the consumption of alcohol. What do you think should it be lowered to 18 or stay at 21?
