What is the legal drinking age where you live? Do you think it should be higher, lower, or remain the same, and why?
It's 16 here for anything that contains 14.9% alcohol or less, and 18 for hard liquor.
I think it's okay. Most people I know started drinking at like fourteen anyway, but that doesn't mean the age has to be lowered in my opinon, that would only make it easier for kids to drink. The 21+ rule like in America would NEVER work here -- we're way too liberal and used to our freedoms (same goes for our drug-use). Maybe 18 should be the age for all alcohol, including beer, since you're officially an adult at eighteen and therefore should take you're own responsibility, but I don't really care... I feel like it's okay like this.
