How young is too young for someone to start drinking alcohol?
Asked at Massachusetts Street on February 25, 2005
“Seventeen is too young to start drinking regularly. Many other countries have a drinking age of 18, and it seems to work for them.”
“Anything under 21 is too young if you ask me. Twenty-one is the law for a reason, right?”
“Realistically, 16. I guess that seems pretty young to me, but a lot of kids start sooner.”
“If they are below high school age, they should probably stay away from it. If they are high school aged, they should be wary of it, and if they are college aged, they should be swimming in it.”
