Re: Drinking Age
There are good arguments on both sides of this debate. For one, despite only being a few years, a person usually does mature quite a bit from 18 to 21. Second, like you said, I don't care if people do something anyways, the law doesn't have to bend just because it's not 100% successful.
On the other side, there are always some benefits of bringing an illicit activity into the legal realm. Maybe the law could be changed to let 18 year olds buy beer to go and not let them sit at a bar all night.
Sorry, I'm 30 now and do not want to go sit around a bunch of 18 year olds when I hit the bars on Friday.
