America has the highest drinking age of any western country with the age limit set at 21. I find it interesting that I can be excuted for a crime, I can vote, hell I can even get my arse shot off in a foriegn land but I can't drink. This law though is paper thin as teens all across America get plastered everyday. Every now and again there is a little blip on the radar where some people say that the drinking age is being reduced to 18. The possibility of booze laws being similar to the rest of the world creates a frenzy like atmosphere where people begin creating petitions or creating FaceBook groups to help the cause of lowering the drinking age. In the end most of these movements are bogus and there is no way in hell that the federal goverenment is going to lower the drinking age. I want to know your thoughts on lowering the drinking age. Imagine you were in the seat of power restructuring the statutes. What restrictions would you put on teenagers buying alcohol? What would be the minimum age to purchase? Would you allow consumption and possesion at a younger age but still keep the age to purchase the same? What would be the punishment for drinking and driving? These are just a few questions to get your mind going.
