Elkhart Truth readers debate the legal drinking age in response to mass underage drinking arrests.

After 60 people were arrested Sunday morning for underage drinking, Elkhart Truth readers debated whether the legal drinking age should be changed.

While many argued for lowering the age to 18, many said the age should stay at 21 or even be raised. 

Should the legal drinking age be lowered, left where it is or raised? Would changing the drinking age change teens’ behavior?
