Should the legal drinking age be more strictly enforced?

Essay

 I don’t think the legal drinking age should be more strictly enforced for the following two reasons.
 The first reason is that there are more serious crimes that the government should put more effort to crack down on. For example, serious crimes such as murder and rape should be more strictly enforced because there are direct victims and they are matters of life and death while there are no direct victims if some minors take alcohol.
 The second reason is that it is impossible to investigate every underage drinking. It is very time consuming and requires a lot of people and money to check every underage drinking and the government cannot afford to waste a lot of money and time on it while there are many serious impending problems such as global warming and the aging society that they should resolve.
 As I mentioned above, I don’t think the legal drinking age should be more strictly enforced for the aforementioned two reasons.
