I never understood why people couldn't just wait until 18 to drink/smoke/etc. It's not exactly like waiting until you're 65 to retire. =/
Maybe because people like to go out and have fun? Beside the point that alcohol abuse shows a correlation between having a high minimum age to drink and no minimum age. An perfect example is the drastic difference in abuse rates between North America and the Eurozone. Minimum age laws fail to teach respect for alcohol and thus only worsen it's societal impact. Thumbs up for political reform for competence !
Where do you live, that the legal drinking age is 18? Just wondering. But really though, not much of an FML.
LOL In Denmark we're allowed to drink from whenever we want, and it's legal to buy alcohol with a certain percent when you're 16, and when you turn 18 you can buy it all. I really don't find this responsible of the politicians, because a lot of kids are getting wasted at age 12-13. In 20-25 years there are going to be a lot of liver-diseases, and that means we're fucked. BUT There is nothing rotten in the state of Denmark!
that doesn't seem so bad, they seem cool about it...also, you don't have to wait till you're 21 like those of us in America...soooooo not FML
