If you dont buy alcohol yourself you still can get in trouble if you are under the legal drinking age because you have to be 21. you shouldnt be drinking alcohol because it ruins your life and your family. it shouldnt be bought if your longer if someone else buys it then they should face the consequences

I think drinks should be allowed at 15 here, and kids should be taught how to drink: WITH FOOD!! If you have a glass of wine with a steak, you have basically canceled out the alcohol in your system. Also, drinking later in the day, and before using the bathroom are easy ways to offset the alcohol.

Well While in law studies today we were going on a law tha takes place i believe in the state of minnisota that no one under the drinking age is allowed to drink acholic beverages but is allowed to drink if it is under 3.2% it makes no sense to me while this law could be passed but you have to be 21 to drink.

the legal drinking age in several countries such as germany is 15. I think 18 would be quite reasonable for the U.S.
