A drinking laws much more serious in America than the UK? as in underage etc
I've heard that in most areas you have to be over 21 and that if you are caught it is taken very seriously? as apposed to the UK
unfortunatelly you heard right you have to be over 21 in the us which i believe is the root cause of most of the alcohol problems in this country
though it makes no sense, 21 seems to be the common legal drinking age in the U.S. here in canada it's 19. what i find wierd is at 16 you can drive a car, at 18 you can vote for the leader of your country but you still can't drink. very strange concept.
I tend to agree aith 16 being "too young" to drive. My daughter started driving a year ago. And I was more than a little "frightened" when she got behind the wheel the first time. Still, as her parent, I could have insisted that she be 18 before she started driving.
I remember when the drinking age, in many states, for beer was 18. There were some problems with highschool seniors going out at lunch and legally having enough drinks to come back to school essentially "drunk." So it's not an easy issue. That being said, 21 seems a little odd given the fact we have soldiers who have had to shoulder the horrors of war yet not be able to "legally" take a drink. America is a land of enigma.
