15 had an essay to write, 750 words supporting the idea of lowering the legal drinking age.

His argument: you have to be 19 to drink yet 16 to acquire a drivers license, 18 to join the army and also to vote. There were a few holes in his argument and areas he didn't even want to consider investigating such as how does alcohol further impair judgment of teenagers who are already impaired? How does alcohol effect or damage the brain especially when it's still developing?

"I am not writing about that" 15 says.

His final argument? His piece de resistance written with great flourish?

The legal drinking age should be lowered because then there would be less teens getting in trouble and charged with under-age drinking.
