Default Re: The Drinking Age

21 Seems like a ridiculously high age to me, it is 18 in the UK and I believe even that is too much. 16 Seems a much more reasonable age.
Like popo said, people who are allowed small quantitys of alcohol are less likely to start binge drinking when it is legal. I have heard of people who have been forbidden of everything for their whole childhoods, then they got straight into binge drinking and hard drug-use. Which is why we have the 5 years old in your own home law.
