'Hunger Games' Star

U.S. Should LOWER

Boozing Age to 18

4/12/2012 7:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

If 18-year-olds can fire a shot in war ... they should be able to take a shot in a bar ... so says "Hunger Games" star Josh Hutcherson.

Hutcherson was leaving STK last night when we asked a question inspired by his 19-year-old co-star Alexander Ludwig ... who triggered an investigation when he left a 21+ bar in Hollywood this week.

Hutcherson tells us the drinking age in America simply doesn't make sense -- saying, "I think the age to go to war is 18 ... so I think the drinking age should be 18 as well."

Hutcherson raises a good point ... so we gotta ask ...

in australia your forced to grow up by the time your 18. you move out . you get a job and you become an adult.
but in the us , your treated like a child until your 21, because of the whole college things , americans arent forced to mature by having to move out and get a job , parents baby there kids in america so of course at 18 americans wont be ready to drink. so really americans should have to wait until their 21 to drink. but if you come from a country like australia or england or anywhere where your forced to mature at 18, should be allowed to drink in the usa. sounds fair to me. like for real usa better clubs better everything.
