Type: Informative Speech
Topic: Should the Drinking Age be lowered?
b) Background/ Audience Relevance:
Majority of the United States citizens are aged 18 and above. This means that people of that age have full legal adult rights and duties. Since the National Minimum Drinking Age Act of 1984 set the MLDA at 21 years old, the question of whether or not it should be decreased has been hotly contested. People believe that when the drinking age is maintained at 21, most teenagers will be protected from harming themselves. Still, this restriction on the drinking age is leading to more harm to teenagers. Allowing 18- to 20-year-olds to drink alcohol in regulated environments with supervision would decrease hazardous drinking activity, the decrease in as a percentage of total traffic fatalities in the United States does not correlate to the MLDA (CNN). Lowering MLDA 21 would reduce the number of underage people hurt from alcohol-related injuries or accidents due to fear of legal consequences if they sought medical attention (Pro And Con: Lowering the Drinking Age | Britannica). On the other hand, lowering the drinking age will invite more use of illicit drugs among 18-21-year-olds. The MLDA should stay at 21 because people tend to be more mature and responsible at 21 than at 18. Lowering MLDA 21 would give high and middle schoolers easier access to alcohol (Pro and Con: Lowering the Drinking Age | Britannica).
