So I was all happy about going to the States for a vacation, and then I realized I couldn't drink. Are there any other countries in the world where the legal drinking age is 21? Canada is 18 or 19 depending on the province, and I think the UK, Australia, and New Zealand are 18 or 19. Are there any countries where you can drink legally before you are 18?
Do you have to be 21 to buy cigarettes in the States? How about lottery tickets and porn?
Also, is there a reason why the American government will send its children off to die in foreign countries before they are allowed to drink? Is alcohol really more harmful than guns or bombs (or cigarettes)?
