LEGAL HELP FOR MINORS
Persons "under the legal age" have their own set of problems. Legal help for minors is often a gray area primarily due to the fact that different states have varying laws.
Until the mid-1960s, American society conventionally viewed 21 as the most appropriate age for full adult status, as reflected in most state and federal laws. The Vietnam War brought the age of majority status into the spotlight.
18 year olds were sent off to kill or be killed, but they couldn't vote. The result was the 26th Amendment to the United States Constitution which lowered the voting age to 18 for all elected positions, federal and state.
After that, it seemed logical to change all minimum age limits to 18. Most legal minimum ages are still at 18. But, there has been one significant exception: In every state in America, the drinking age has been raised from 18 to 21
