Should 18-20 year olds be allowed to drink only at restaurants?!

Question: Should 18-20 year olds be allowed to drink only at restaurants!?
As you all know, underage drinking has gotten really out of control, and honestly cant be stopped!. Binge drinking has become excessively high much more than it ever was when the drinking age was 18 back in the 1980s!. Soo,maybe what we should do is allow 18-20 year olds to drink only beer at restaurants and say that they can only be allowed to drink at most a couple of beers!. This encourages more responsible, social drinking rather than binge drinking!. Would this policy work better than our current one!?Www@FoodAQ@Com

i think this idea would work if ur old enough for everything else like smoking, porn, and the army why not a little supervised drinking!?Www@FoodAQ@Com

no!.!. the solution would be for parents to not drink, so children don't learn the habit!.!.
if 18-20 year olds can't be responsible enough to obey the law as it is, why would allowing them to drink legally in restaurants make them more responsible!?
if they expect rewards, they need to earn them first!.!.!.!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

in Alberta Canada 18 is the legal drinking age!. the rest of the country is 19!. different places have different policies, so I think if you are mature enough to have 1 or 2 it should be OK!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

what happens when they leave the restaurant!?
&besides, allowing restaurants to 'break the rules' would only encourage other rules to be broken!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

Nope wouldn't work but I do also agree with the guy who said that if we can sign up to die for our country then we should be able to have a beer at 18 also!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

i think its interesting and maybe limit to one beer or glass of wine!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

With and only with a valid MILITARY ID! and then the drinks are on me!!Www@FoodAQ@Com

well i believe if we can decide to die for our country at age 18, we should be able to decide to drinkWww@FoodAQ@Com

no bad idea there is no way that it would stick to just inside restaurantsWww@FoodAQ@Com

you yourself must be between the ages of 18 and 21Www@FoodAQ@Com
