that happens to just as many people in the US when they turn 21.....
the drinking age should be lowered, it will lower the abusing rate fo sho
each state has its own individual right to make the drinking age whatever they would like, however they are persuaded to keep it at 21 becuase they get government funding for their highways. see only after MADD was formed did the drinking age rise becuase so many kids were getting killed drinking and driving. in concusion, dont hold your breath for the drinking age to be lowered because no state is goign to turn down free money.
oops, wrong account!!
that was really from me...
theres really no point in keeping the drinking age at 21 cause by the time people are 21 they have alreay drinkin probably cause most go through college.
so, here where i live (austria), you can officially drink beer/wine with 16 and everything liquour-like-stuff after you turned 18. but in our bars, you basically get everything to drink as long as your not looking much younger than 14. on weekends, theres a good tenth of one club just 12-15 yr old girlies and losers hanging round in those corners, spending the money of their parents and so on...
as long as parents arent doing anything about it (i dunno, since i was raised there was a mind-shift in parents, it might be just me) and give them money, i hate it. if you "drink your own money" than go for it, no problem.
i mean, we all know that lowering the legal drinking age isnt changing a lot, since i am pretty sure that all of you americans have drank alcohol before you were 21 (risky call i know).
High School kids in general are lame, but it should be at least 19. 18 would be fine for some kids but large amounts of high school kids in bars would make it feel like high school.
