How stupid is it, that you can't go and order a bottle of water from a bar, ONLY IF YOU ARE 21. YOU CANT EVEN STAND BY THE BAR.

XDDDDD Really? My Dad brought me to the bar when my mum was away when I was like 5 or 6! I used to play outside or he would give me 50c to use on the lil sratch card thingy!

The National Minimum Drinking Age Act of 1984 required all states to raise their minimum purchase and public possession of alcohol age to 21. States that did not comply faced a reduction in highway funds under the Federal Highway Aid Act.... It does not prohibit persons under 21 (also called youth or minors) from drinking. The term "public possession" is strictly defined and does not apply to possession for the following:

An established religious purpose, when accompanied by a parent, spouse or legal guardian age 21 or older
Medical purposes when prescribed or administered by a licensed physician, pharmacist, dentist, nurse, hospital or medical institution
In private clubs or establishments
In the course of lawful employment by a duly licensed manufacturer, wholesaler or retailer.

just want to add one thing: in holland its legal to buy and smoke weed. still they have fewer tennagers smokin weed on a regular basis than other countries. i guess it's the same thing with alcohol and most other drugs.

i just have nothing to say...
except this
your not an alcoholic if you drink a couple of beers... I know that i spend too much money on alcohol, but i'm certainly NOT an alcohol addict. Are you being told that is you get a drip of alcohol in your blood, your addicted straight away, f*ck up your whole life and burn in hell for eternity after you quit living your horrible alcohol addicted life?
just pathetic

b3nzyme you have some serious issues. You clearly have no idea why most people drink alcohol.

i know its a bit late, but to whoever asked- i'm not sure what the drinking age is in cuba, but i'm 16, and i went there last year and they sold me cuba libres no questions asked

however i'm going to iceland this year- very much doubt i will pass for a 20 year old.

I wouldn't know. I haven't drank, and will NEVER drink PERIOD, and that's a choice that I made (And a dedication to God) However, I think that America's drinking age IS a little bit preposterous. However, we also seem to have the most drunk driving, and I duno... I wonder why isn't so high here.

That was interesting to see. As if the US actually follows that law. I remember people back in high school going on and on about the parties they went to and how "messed up" they were. I wonder when they'll actually change that age limit over here.

Also, the whole idea with you guys not wanting 18 year olds to be drunk ass holes? HA. Its just like in my government class in my freshmen year...(junior now)We were debating on Gay Marrige and some guy said I don't want gays and lesbians walkin around. Well guess what people? They're gonna walk around anyway! Minors are going to drink anyway!

The diffence between the Gay marrige thing in drinking is, Gay marrige being legal will not lower the amount of them getting married. If the government lowered the drinking age, us teenagers wouldn't be able to rebel as much, we'd find some thing else. I personally think (as in MY opinion) that if the drinking age were lowered to 18 there would be less DUI's than there is now.

Thats just my two cents (Two post)

If in America, we can vote, and go to war and risk our lives for our country at age 18 we should be allowed to drink.

Makes me wonder if I would be such a drunk if it had been legal for me to drink when i was younger. I would just drink really fast straight from the bottle and then be on my way. It gets you drunk quick and you don't see it coming, because you drank it too fast for it to effect you before you stopped drinking.

Damn, it's the American government's fault that I drink excessively and then wander around making a fool of myself!

Our drinking age is arbitrary, by the way. It's based off of the age at which a squire would generally be knighted, 21. That's it. Great logic, right? There's nothing scientific about the magical ages of 18 and 21.

wow... I've never seen someone as passionate about this topic as b3nzyme... I don't drink because I choose not to. I don't tell other people what to do because IT'S NONE OF MY DAMN BUSINESS.

BTW, I have a co-worker on a work study program from Ireland who is underage here. Apparently, there is some law that allows you to use your passport in the U.S. that allows you to purchase alchohol if you're of age where you come from. I don't know if it's entirely true, but he had some wild parties.

anyone who chooses to drink alcohol should be rid of all their rights and thrown in a camp where they are beaten daily and told to labor for little of nothing because they made the choice to throw their lives away. either that or make a choice to join the military where they will be forced to fight. (killed if they refuse). people who choose to drink alcohol are so dam stupid they are not worth being shat on. all they are doing it for is for attention, and satisfaction (because they have none in life if they choose to do so). because of that negative outlook they are useless and will one day be 25 with that alcoholic look on their face that makes them look like 52 and their skin hangs to the ground and they are so dam sorry they live off the real people's tax dollars. it should be the worst outlawed thing and one should be shot on the spot even if they are SUSPECTED for alcohol. ... This is why im not your president..

oh geez alcohol destroys your brain cells in small amounts or large amounts....they change the rules all the time...like when they said eating an all atkins diet was good for you until people started having heart problems...people can get alcohol anywhere it's not that hard...though I respect the drinking age...so people don't start screwing up their lives before they need to. anywho not everyone in the us drinks for the purpose to be drunk...but even the smallest amount can make someone tipsy because it slows down coordination

it's not legal to drink at the age of 14 in holland, i say it's possible to get it when i was 14 :)

the think is, if you are 14 in holland (where i live), it's possible to get drunk, BUT because your 14/15, you don't have much money to spend, so you can't drink a lot. if you're 21 and can start the drinking, you'll waste a lot of money, because you'll have more money, resulting in alcohol intoxication and stuff like that.
also, if i read something about alcohol in the USA, it's always
1: you don't drink
2: you drink, and people think your an alcoholic.
i'm not trying to promote alcohol use, but i am trying to let you realize that 21 is way too old, and causes other problems.

actually, alchohol is good for you in small amounts. like, a glass of wine. thats the problem in america. *stupid* kids count the frig'n seconds until they can drink and then get plastered out of their mind when they hit 21. its absolutly pathetic. whereas in most of europe alchohol isnt a humoungous taboo and people have wine with dinner and things like that fairly often. notice i said MOST of europe. but we can't change the law here in the states because than everyone in the country would get drunk simultaniously (impossible word to spell), which would be bad. then again, people would die
