According to Gabrielle Glaser's article "Return the Drinking Age to 18, and Impose It (2015)," teenagers between the ages of 18 and 21 should be licensed to consume alcohol. The author backs up his arguments by stating that since the stated age group is permitted by the constitution to vote, marry, buy weapons, and join the military, they should also be allowed to drink. Glaser's goal is to include a detailed case that opposes the 21-year-old drinking age in order to persuade lawmakers that lowering the drinking age to 18 years is necessary. Glaser is talking to a broad audience through her article's plain words. Work Cited Glaser, Gabrielle. "Return the Drinking Age to 18, and Enforce It."
