When do you really know when you become a so called “Adult”. Some states have it to when you turn 18 you are physically turned to an adult but are you really mentally an adult. Also some people say if you cannot consume alcohol at the age of 21 but why are they making it so at the age of 16 you are being eligible to vote. In some states by the age of 14 you are being able to vote and you are considered an adult and do other things that 18 year olds can do. Also in some states if you are under 18 you are considered a minor and if you commit a crime they tend to go easier on the penalties they give you but if you turn 18 and commit a crime things won’t be as easy as the underaged.
In my opinion I say that the age to be able to do all of these things (Voting, drinking, driving, etc) should be done at the age of 21 in all states because you are mentally prepared for it. Also I believe that the law enforcement should not be so light on juveniles because most of them do know what they are doing and they see that getting introube is like a game for them.
So When is the actual age you become an adult?Tags: Age of consent Orange Cove High School
