I think education is better than legal age limits such as these!. Teach people to respect alcohol and they will use it accordingly!.

That doesn't mean that schools preach about the dangers while the media and parents advertise and encourage drinking!. Parents need to demonstrate responsible drinking and take responsibility for their children's education in this matter!.

The media should also take more care not to glorify alcohol fuelled events and the like - such as schoolies escapades, big day out, etc!. By all means show accidents caused by kids drinking, but don't show the drunk kids acting up for the news cameras!.

We're all guilty of going a bit too far every now and then!.!.!. but now that pubs are open all hours, I see more drunk kids on the street than ever before!. And I'm not that old!.!.!.

The legal drinking age is 18 in Australia!. And I don't think it's necessary to raise it at all!.
Jas - you need to be 17 to get your license, at 16 you can only have your L's, must drive with an adult supervising, and have to complete a logbook!.
Espressoman - you finish highschool at 17, not 18!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

No, and 18 is the legal drinking age in Aus!. anyway!.

I, and most of my friends used to drink from about the age of 14!. We would take it from our parents and go drinking in parks, train stations etc!. What we were doing was extremely dangerous!. I don't think extending this age would help solve anything!. In fact, once I turned 18, I pretty much stopped drinking all together!. There's something about being able to buy it whenever you want that is just not that thrilling any more!. Www@FoodAQ@Com

HELL NO! Then they would just export more of that crappy Foster's Lager and Ale to the states!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

I think 19 would be better than 18!. Alot of 18's are still in high school!.Www@FoodAQ@Com
