it has been proven that the younger children are introduced to alcohol the more likely they are to NOT abuse alcohol. other countries such as france, belgium, and italy have a REALLY low drinking age, i bought several beers while i was there. i think that if they lower the drinking age the punishment for a DUI etc. should be higher than it is now.
Update 2: and yeah Tyler C, you are damn right!
Update 3: and a ten year old is commenting on this? i respect your opinion but cmon...
