This NIDA funded study found that peer influence was  different for different drugs.  Marijuana use was the most the most peer-influenced substance, and alcohol the least. Ethnicity also made a difference in adolescents' vulnerability to peer influence.  Whites were more influenced by peers than were blacks or Hispanics, and white females were the most influenced by their friends' attitudes, particularly toward tobacco and marijuana.

The Debate On Lowering The Drinking Age - CBS News

Analysis: The 21st amendment discusses the legalization of alcohol. With the drinking age being increased to 21 years old there is more of under age drinking. This is a debate that will go on forever. No matter what there are always ways to get around the law. I agree with the law because teens today are immature and rushing their lives. Consuming alcohol is dangerous in an uncontrolled environment, especially when done by younger teens. Either way, 18 or 21, teens should be educated about the consequences of excessive drinking.
