Drinking license proposed for 18 year olds.

Q&A: The End of Fake IDs? - Newsweek Periscope - MSNBC.com

What 18-20 year old do you know that HASN'T had a drink?

This seems like a pretty good idea to me.

Re: Drinking license proposed for 18 year olds.

What they ought to do is lower the drinking age to 16 for beer and wine, 18 for everything else (booze, grass, hash, etc), raise to 18 the driver's age, raise the voting age to 21, and see how that works...

Re: Drinking license proposed for 18 year olds.

I believe what the law is trying to say is, "take it someplace else. Not in our city."

I'm not sure if anyone cares about the law anymore. We have a neighborhood kid boozing it up every night with friends outside. Mom doesn't want them inside, because they make too much noise. Too much noise.

So we call the police. Because sleep at 3am on weekdays is a good thing. Police arrive and ask if they have been drinking. If they say "yes" they are made to dump it out and told not to do that anymore. Repeat for every day of the week. He totaled his car, got fired from his job, in debt as a college student but without the higher education, but he can drink and toss beer cans over the fence. And if we call the police about gunshots or whatever, the party is broken up. And someone later tries to break in their window to get some more alcohol. Kids....

This is nightly youtube material.

Re: Drinking license proposed for 18 year olds.

ok first off this really isnt a issue a city or state can make. the legislature of the united states would have to purpose and vote on a bill for this to ever work since the "national" drinking age is astablished in the constitution

Re: Drinking license proposed for 18 year olds.

Reminds me of the time we were on a family vacation in Provincetown, Cape Cod. Me, wife and three of my children. Went for a meal in a very nice restaurant. Waitress (who happened to be French) asked if we'd like drinks. So ordered wine and softdrinks for the females. I asked for a beer and asked my 17 year old son if he wanted one too. Waitress said this was an absolute no no unless he could prove he was 21. We started to laugh, thinking it was a bit of a joke, but she was adamant.
No problem , says I, I'll have two beers then. Thankyou.
Sorry, says waitress, can't be done, I'll get fired.
We gave in and he had a coke or something.

Well, talk about culture shock. The French waitress must have thought the US a very odd place indeed. Where she comes from children drink wine with the meal, supervised, from a very early age, pre-teen even. And here was a nice middle class family from England asking for a beer for the 17 year old son, to be drunk at the table, with a meal.

Not responsible enough to have a beer, but would you like to buy a gun, or drive a car? Join the army?

Some very odd laws you have, very much out of step with the rest of the western world, and in my view the worse for it.

No, it isnt national, it is a state issue. Remember the 80's? NY=18 CT=21...Great for my friends and I...

2 things:
I agree that the US is all goofy with its bs about booze/guns/sex...But cest la vie

Next, Dude, Provincetown is a GAY town...The whole town. That was not a french woman waiting on you, it was a transvestite or transexual man, affecting a french accent.

Do you think I didn't notice? Walking past Club Purgatory on "Leather and Levis" night, I held my wife's hand real tight.

Actually, it was great place for a holiday, only there a few days, but loved it. One thing about the gay community, it has a lot of spending power, so the whole place was kind of upmarket with galleries, restaurants, good shops, just calm and cool places. And the whale watching was excellent.
