    I see where you're coming from but look at it from a legal standpoint. I don't know the laws for florida or if you've ever been ticketed. But up here in CT we get $316 plus a 60 day suspension of our licenses. Thats a pretty hefty price to pay for boozing.

    As most of you said, just because your body is that age, it doesn't mean you can be trusted with the same amount of responsibility. Personally, I don't see the point in a leagal age. It's not like people pay that much attention to it anyways? Banning things doesn't make people stop doing them. I only tend to drink at parties and stuff. But I don't drink when I'm at home, unless it's due to some form of celebrating and shtuffz. Hell, I don't even like alcohol that much :\ My Dad's put me off the stuff over the last few months, actually.

    Chaossama Just a user, literally

    I don't believe that they were thinking that they would stop it (though the distinct hope is that before you are of the age that can at least be considered responsible for themselves, the law can prevent PUBLIC drinking. They know they can't stop people from privately going to drink or what not, it's only the fear that if given approval to publicly start drinking and not suffer consequences, that the level of drinking would then go much lower. And then, if they do that, where could they stop it? 8? 4? 2? No drinking age at all, in which case anyone can basically poison their brain with alcohol? Alcohol CAN have an effect on the developing brain and just legalizing it would result in MANY more stupid people than we do now, which would truly be frightening ;)

    Yep. I agree. But here is another factor that can result in under age drinking. I will explain with a story. At my school, there was a concert happening that night and me and my girlfriend were performing in it. She is VERY nervous. And to calm her down, her stupid, ignorant, piece of shit father(he really is) gave her something to drink to relax her. And it worked. She was calmer and everything. But she only became calmer. She was still nervous. What if she became dependent on the stuff? I was discusted when she told me that she was a little drunk. And even more when she told me that her father actually GAVE her the drink. Sometimes parents don't tell their children not to drink or drive. And some actually LET them drink and drive. The law can do whatever it likes in my opinion. But I think that you would have to be an idiot to drink at all. I know the majority of you have but I completely disagree with drinking. I see it as discusting, selfish way to fix your problems or to "have fun".

    Just in case that was off-topic, I think they should keep it at 21. Just make the punishment more severe. And all because they are minors, Doesn't mean that they deserve less punishment.

    I think it's great that her father gave her something to drink.
    A, it makes physiological sense, in that being agitated, or nervous can make you perform tasks better. However, only up to a certain point, at which point your performance declines rapidly, I.E. you're TOO nervous.
    Calming her down with chemicals could easily help her perform.

    B, it teaches her that alcohol is not "the devil's drug", or anything like that. can be used in moderation, with few ill effects. Drinking a bit in a positive home environment, in my opinion, can help you learn your limits, and lessen your chances that you'll od at your grad party or first college kegger.

    However, I assume he gave her something to drink and then sent her to drive her self to the concert. Not a very responsible thing to do at all. No one should have anything to drink and then drive. ​

    Sorry. I just don't believe in any of that. Using chemicals to calm her down? Or screwing up her brain just ever so slightly is another way to put it. If she is too nervous, the don't perform. I'm sorry but there is no logic by anybody that will change my mind. Anybody being drunk is deeply disturbing to me. But when my fiance starts, i'm going to be one pissed off white boy. Do what you want. As long as it doesn't effect me. Her being even slightly drunk is a very disturbing thought. Because it is not her. It's those "chemicals" talking to me. Not the girl I fell in love with.

    I am half french half english, in france the drinking age is 16 and in england its 18......
    The fact the drinking age is lower doesnt stop ppl drining, every teenager does it, the difference is about, in my opinion were you come from. I france more ppl drink alcool every week than in britain, the only difference is the spread it out evenly every day of the week (not every one but most), were as in england the aim of drinking seems to be getting pised out of your head so you cant wake up the next morning, so they drink mainly on fridays and saturdays!
    Drinking laws are there for a reason, its addictive and many believe it alcohol hadnt been part of a society for so long, heck think about how far back it goes, then it would probably be banned throughout the community. Alcohol is tecnically the most dangerous drug, causing the most deaths in the UK, so yer personnaly i dnt think there is much they can do about it.....

    Yeah the drinking age needs to be lowerd because Teens gennerally want to do whats not allowed. example in Amptsterdam Pot is legal thus makeing the black market in drugs why smaller. the same goes for booze if beer is legal at the age of 18 the body will be more likley to not tolerably eccecpt the amount as a 21 year old man can. less 18 year old's would be able to throw a frat party after waiting 18 years and practically drow themself's in the substance. where as the real frat guys are just dreanching themself because they can fially drink ligamently (highly unlikly to not try it all the way to 21)

    It'd be interesting to see what the effects of removing the drinking age, lowering it to eighteen, and raising it to twenty-four would be.

    I never had any trouble getting offered booze when I wasn't even old enough to drive, although I found drinking to be a social game designed to lower the standards of everyone involved to allow for an easier mating system in regards to theoretical offspring. There is a bit of an entertainment aspect to it that most people seem to try and play up as the major reason for it, but though it's pretty obvious when viewed from as objective a viewpoint as a subjective meatbag can be.

    That aside, doesn't the introduction of alcohol, a poison, cause negative long-term affects, especially in lifeforms that are not done with their primary growth cycle to adulthood?
