Writer's Block: Young and driven

What is the legal drinking age where you live? Do you think it should be higher, lower, or remain the same, and why?

For some reason, I first read this as "driving age." Huh.

Anyhow, it's 21 here, and like most Right Thinking People (not right-thinking people), I think it should be lowered to 18. If you can do pretty much any life-changing thing at that age, why can't you drink? It's not THAT big bad a bogeyman. About all the drinking age does currently is make it seem even MORE forbidden and mysterious or whatever, and help lead to excess.
