they don't have as high of a drinking age in places like england and france, but our culture is a lot different too!. Americans don't do things in moderation!.!.!. thats why we are fatter, in more debt!.!.!. everything!. I hate when people try and compare the drinking ages of different countries because they do not take how Americans drink into account!. I would say the majority of people that do drink!.!.!. drink to get trashed!. We rarely sit around and have a social drink!. Our DWI laws suck here as well!.!.!. think about how many fatalities we have every year (you obviously sound young and have not been effected by something like that yet)!. In countries other countries they face jail time right away for a DWI so driving intoxicated is cut down dramatically!. In some states here you do not even get a felony until your THIRD DWI!. That is absolutely pathetic!.

Sure, minors drink anyway!.!.!. I'm 20 and work in a bar!. I know it happens but I think American teenagers do not have the maturity to or knowledge of how drinking effects them!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

if i'm old/"responsible" enough to vote for my nation's leaders, old enough to die for my country, legally old enough to smoke a cigarette, work in a bar, waste my money on the lottery, and be considered a LEGAL ADULT, i should be able to have a beer!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

In Australia the drinking age is 18 and it doesnt really change anything!. If they ever bring the drinking age up to 21 minors are still going to drink!. I think the U!.S!. government has better things to worry about then changing the drinking age!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

im really confused on the whole drinking age thing !.!.!.!. its illegal to drink if your 18 in the us!. the law allows 18 year olds to fight in iraq and risk theyr lives everyday, but cant come home and have a beer!. nonsense !!Www@FoodAQ@Com

Old enough to hold a can , Old enough to drink !.Www@FoodAQ@Com
