ridiculous to me. I'm not saying that 18 year olds should be drinking,
but the discrepancy between being deemed mature enough to make informed
decisions about those other things, but not old enough to drink is one
that doesn't sit well with me. I'd either raise those other ages, or
lower the drinking age.>
I'll go you one better. Here in Maine, some stores will not sell alcohol
to 21+ y/o members of our Armed Services if all they can show is a
military ID. Absolutely shameful...
I believe that changed in the 80s. Most still will NOT sell to under
21s even with a military ID and I found that back in 79/80 in states
where the legal drinking age was 21.
