Raising the age is NOT GOING TO SOLVE THAT. You'll just have older people becoming alcoholics instead. If that's your opinion, then why not ban it completely? Hey, people can have accidents in cars! Better ban those too, oh, and chocolate, can't have that around. Why don't we just live in boxes all our lives? Nothing bad can happen then. You seem very left wing, but you're as close minded as a die hard conservative. Kind of ironic really.
i'm sorry, but where do you get your conclusions from?
my POV comes from studies and statistics.
I don't have or ever will have my views define by bird appendages
Drinking in Adolescence. Currently 1.9 million young people between the ages of 12 and 20 are considered heavy drinkers and 4.4 million are binge drinkers. Anyone who begins drinking in adolescence is at risk for developing alcoholism. Young people at highest risk for early drinking are those with a history of abuse, family violence, depression, and stressful life events. People with a family history of alcoholism are also more likely to begin drinking before the age of 20 and to become alcoholic. Such adolescent drinkers are also more apt to underestimate the effects of drinking and to make judgment errors, such as going on binges or driving after drinking, than young drinkers without a family history of alcoholism.
