plus...when you are 16 your not all the way through puberty and your liver and colon and stuff aren't fully developed and it can cause disease

I think that 21 is a fine age....I think in the home it should be like 18...or at like a party with parental supervision...
and I don't think 16 is a very mature age....


AND 5 IN THE HOME!!?!????!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!
HOLY MOLY!!!!!!!
16 is fine, the more something is forbidden the more people will want it, make it accessable to people at a slightly younger age. That ties in with the 5 in your own home thing. I don't think you read what I wrote properly, either that or I didn't write it, I can't be assed to go back and look. But that law is with parental supervision. 21 and even 18 is way too high I think, seriously you can marry at 16 here with parental consent, but not even be able to drink at your own wedding?
