if you can smoke a cigarette, go to war, rent a porno, and go to the stripclub at 18, why cant you get a beer at 18?

True..but 18 year olds are too immature IMO. But, I shouldn't be talking, I still pay hobos to buy us alcohol.

They shouldn't be able to go to war though. If you base it solely on that, then yes they should get a beer. I think they're also too immature and young to go to war. However, I guess the government should lower the drinking age, or raise the army age.

In the UK 13-15 year old kids binge drink, different culture I guess.

Hell yeah it should be lowered, If I can fight for this country and serve time as an adult (actually in my state your not an adult till 19) why the hell can't I go buy some Bicardi? And trust me, the number of 18-21 year olds who drink wouldn't change if the law was changed. Not like it really matters right now though, on my campus all drinkin is illegal.

Overhere you have to be 16, but when ur 14 you can get beer too. But in America you can drive a car at 16 :p here you have to be 18. Thing's fucked up all over the world.

The average age of a private in nam and iraq was/is 18. The goverment need expendable & poor youth to murder in the name power and money.

11 damm, i think that is a little too young to start drinkin. But I think an 18 year old should be able to do whatever the hell he/she wants. I know you're probabbly thinkin im just saying that cuz im 18, but I feel that 18 is old enough to decide for yourself what you want to do with your time and money.

Well i mean, that at 16 its legal to buy alcohol, but when ur 14 and you go to a bar, and order a beer for example, you get it too, without questions asked. That's usually the way it goes anyway.

Honestly If You Asked Me This When I Was 18 I'd Say Yeah They Should But I Meen I Dont Think It's A Great Idea To Immature, Drunk Driving Would Probably Increase Too. But Truthfully When Your 18 You Can Pretty Much Get Beer Whenever You Want Anyway The Only Problem Is With Bars But You Could Find Some That Will Let You In Anyway. So Maybe They Should Just Let You Drink And Then Maybe It Wont Be Such A Big Deal And Kids Will Drink Less I Dont Know I'm On The Fence With This.

last time we voted for Governer, the president of Coors beer (as its founded in Colorado and he lives here) was running, but he didnt get elected, if he did, he was gonna lower drinkin age to 18, more money for him i guess, but it woulda been cool

i was a fully fledged alcho by 21 - i dont think it matters what the LEGAL drinkin age is - kids will be kids, 15-16 im sure thats when we all first took a "experiment" - its just how hard it is to get your hands on, i smoked weed first at 13 - cause it was easy to get my hands on, easier than grog.

Yea that shit kills me : in the US, they allow you to vote for this mothafucka at 18 and you can't have a beer ? here in France we can drink at 16 beers, wines etc ... and 18 for Tekila, vodka etc ... but if you're 14 and you drink a beer in the street, no cop will arrest you.

yep, i think the age here should stay as it is.

when i was younger i used to drink loads, be on the park with like 30-40 people and we'd get about 4 of us together, putting our money together to buy a bottle of cider & a pack of cigarettes, sad shit, but we thought we were the coolest.

also, has anyone else in england heard that the government is supposed to be lowering the legal age of sexual consent to sumthin stupid like 13 or 14 (cant remember which), if that happens u do know that theres gonna be bare kids younger than that making babies.

Here in Norway you have to be 18 to buy beer and wine, and 20 to buy vodka, cognac etc.

But it is a fact that the earlier you start drinking, the greater the chance is to become an alcoholic
