Honestly, it doesn't really matter. People will drink underage no matter what. Anyone who doesn't is a ****ing faggot. I'm sry, I know it's your life and you have the right to do what you want, but goddammit live a little. Do you know where the kids that don't drink are in highschool? There certainly not at all the parties. They certainly don't hang out with anyone even the least bit cool.

Sorry, but it's the truth

The metalhead39 comment was so stupid, sorry buddy, perhaps you want to read it and write a new one.
There shouldn't be a drink age, because that makes stupid people to drink it because it seems very cool to get drunk. Getting drunk or hanging out with people just because they drink is definitly not cool. It's an individual responsibility anyways.

What an asshat. I drink (quite a bit) but I still have respect for the people who choose not to. It's their lives, so let them live them.

You don't have to drink to be cool, muppet.

But what does anyone else know? Focus on just drinking, and have fun working at Burger King for the rest of your life.

I think they've got it right at 18 here in Australia. I'm not going to go into the patriotic dick waving, but i think that is, depending on how fast you develop, the age where it won't stunt your brains growth or something like that. I think 21 is a little extreme, but more healthy.

you really think all of that is important... wow im probably younger then you and i know whats right and what is not you ****ing freak
#11
i think it should be 19 cause it would kind of keep it away from kids still in high school casue most of them are 18. and it would make life just easier for everyone else i.e. college students casue they are gonna drink either way and having the drinking age at 19 would jsut get rid of all the trouble you can get in with the school/law with drinking.

21 is way too much, I'd never wanna wait that long to get into a bar

18 seems good

But in cultures where kids are allowed to drink wine and such from a young age, they grow up thinking alcohol is no big deal. Therefore they don't use it as a way to be stupid and rebel - which is good. Plus they learn responsibilities at a far earlier age

it should be legal for anyone to drink. it should also be legal to smoke pot. then all the losers at my school would have nothing to talk about.

Well as far as drinking goes, I'll drink but I've only been drunk 3 times in my life. I don't go to all the parties but I'd hang to say most of my friends are considered 'cool'. I'll admit though I wish I would start drinking more.

Also you suck.

Look, I didn't mean to offend anyone. I even said it's their life and they have a right to do what they want.

I just think they're wasting their teenage years. They're missing out on so many of the things highschools all about. Just trying to help them out that's all.

21 is a bit excessive really.

Wow, you're an idiot. Getting piss drunk at someone's house while their parents are away and passing out in a pool of your own vomit is what high school is all about? Give me a ****ing break. You're not helping anyone.


As for me, I support an idea I've read about in a few places, a "drinking license" of sorts. Around age 18 or so, you can take a test where you answer some questions about alcohol and the laws surrounding it to recieve a license that allows you to purchase and consume alcohol outside of your own home. If you are convicted of drunken driving or another alcohol-related crime, your license is revoked.

I didn't say being a huge dumbass mag is what highschool's about. I said having a few drinks and being social and having fun with all your friends once in a while isn't a bad thing.

I know, but the reality is that in high school, drinking comes along with that. It's just the way it is. I think we can all agree on that.

High five. Weed has no bad effects like drinking. No hangovers.

Age doesn't really matter as much as people think. It's how our society as a whole percieves drugs that effects anything. Until people learn how to use drugs in a safer context when used recreationally, there are still going to be tons of problems. (And unfortunately, most people are pretty dumb.)

I agree with your statement about how children are exposed to alcohol at an early age. I was allowed a glass of wine at special occasions during my childhood, and I respect alcohol and I don't go overboard (Usually ). I'm conflicted in the matter, I didn't think that post through either.

If we educate kids, I think is what I'm trying to get at.

I think you should have to be 18 to buy but it should be legal to drink at any age, and discipline should be done by parents and the parents views on the matter

I think it should be 15+ or even 13+.

The ironic thing is that I personally don't drink and am against it.


The way I see it, so many kids drink as a form of rebelling because they think it is a cool thing to do. If they are allowed to drink anyway it would not be such a novelty. If drinking was not such a 'taboo' I highly doubt it would be as popular in youth culture.

There is one flaw in that though, if sounds like a very reasonable idea but its not just underage drinkers that drink to excess, which means its clearly not just an act of rebelion, people do it for fun and kicks, alcohol loosens you up alot, it gets you talking to people you wouldnt normally talk to etc. The sad thing these people don't realise is that it only takes a beer or two really.

16 is the worst time to spring alcohol on a teenager. 16 means driving in America (not sure of German Laws) but drinking and driving usually doesn't have a kick ass result.

I've been drinking since I was like, 8. Not excessively of course, just little sips here and there from my parents drinks. It's the best thing to do in my opinion, because then alcohol isn't that big a deal when the kid is older.

I still think 18 is a pretty fair age.
