A ridiculously stupid idea that the U.S. government made up, trying to be our parents and forgetting that Prohibition didn't work and never will. The minimum drinking age in the United States is 21, nevermind that 18-year-olds can vote and serve in the army. And yet, The U.S. still has the highest amount of youth drinking problems in the world! This should be changed. Write to your Senator today.
My husband and I went on our honeymoon when he came back from Iraq, but we couldn't drink because we are only 20 years old, and the minimum drinking age is 21! Thank you, Uncle Sam!!!

mostly 18, sometimes 16. But in the United States, it's 21. Main reason why American college students leave the country for spring break. Also proven to be a trap for international students coming to study.
Scenario 1 (local American student)

Bar tender: Can I see an ID?
Student: (hands over fake ID)
Bar tender: Looking at your ID it does not appear to be real, I am sorry but you have to leave.
Student: WTF!?! I am seriously sick and tired of waiting until 21. I am going to Canada for spring break where the drinking age is 18!! Maybe party in Montreal! Plus they are generous to accept my American drivers license there.

Scenario 2 (International student studying in the US)

Bar tender: Can I see your ID?
Student: (hands over a European passport)
Bar tender: I'm sorry but you gotta be 21 to drink
Student: WTF!? I thought you have to be 18
Bar tender: Nope, it's 21, and it will always be
Student: Then I was tricked, in my country I can drink at age 18. The US has the stupidest drinking age ever and they seem to hate college students like us...

Something that is retarded in the United States. You can thank Reagan and MADD for that.

n. When minors engage in illegal but fun activities to make up for the fact that they're stuck in high school at the whim of the state government until they turn 18.

Often a symptom of senioritis, and usually accompanied by the fear that the kid who's parents are away will magically return to discover upwards of 20 shitfaced teens in varying states of undress in the living room.
newspaper reporter: "under age drinking is on the rise... beware"

kid #1: under age drinking is a joke, I don't even get hangovers anymore!
kid #2: you're so right, man. Look I stole my parents' vodka, let's party!
