Historical moment wait til 21

President Reagan signed into law on July 17, 1984 the Uniform Drinking Age Act mandating all states to adopt 21 as the legal drinking age. By 1988 all states had set 21 as th minimum dinking age. It is estimated that 900+ lives have been saved. Many of these may be teens who could no longer legally drink as they were under age.

This can lead to dangerous decisions they may make to show off for friends. Anger may also come out leading to fights or hurting their selves in other manners.
