Either make the drinking age 21 or all the other stuff 21.

Turning 18 doesn't mean shit. All you can really do is get tried as an adult.
Especially in Canada, since you have sex at 16 here.

It's 19 to drink here, which is stupid, since it's one year.
I wonder what Mary J laws will be like, 18+ or 21+?

In Colorado it's 21+ to smoke weed and grow up to six plants, but im not sure if I would say it has the same classification as Alchohol. Both shouldn't be consumed while driving, but Marijauna doesn't cause permanant brain damage or liver damage from overconsumption like Alcohol does.

Also with the "Anyone can get it", yeah laws don't really matter when it comes to that.

It's like Cigarettes, there is no age on when you can smoke it, but you have to be 18+ to purchase it. Cops can't bust you for smoking a cigarette under 18, but they can bust you for purchasing cigarettes or finding someone who purchased it for you.

Alchohol you can practically always get away with as long as you don't buy it for somebody or do it publically. Our Prom After-party was busted by the Police, but nobody got charged.

DUI is Illegal, same with Public Intoxication, but if a Cop busts a House Party full of 17-18 year olds Drinking, it's actually counter-productive to hunt down each and every party guest, because it's a waste of police resources.
As long as none of those kids drive, they aren't hurting anybody. You don't have control over that stuff.

American law overreacts to weed, Canadian cops don't care as long as your not obvious or blatant. Cops won't go out of their way to bust pot-smokers, but if someone walks up smoking a phatty and dealing to some kids, they will be confenscated, fined, and in rare cases small amount of jail time.

To be fair, int most states in america, you can have sex legally at 16, assuming it's with someone else who's age is greater than 16 and less than three years older than you. It's just at 18 where you can be in porn or have sex legally with significantly older people.

16 is also driving with your own licence assuming you've driven with a permit for at least six months, though after 18 you just need a permit for a few weeks before you can test for a licence.

At 18, you can purchase Nicotine products as well as Tobaco products, but the taxes on those are getting rediculous. It's over seven dollars for a single pack of Malboros. That's why I stick with E-Cigs. Healthier anyway.

You know, I wonder if america isn't trying to stagger milestones out to prevent a young adult from overdoing it by doing everything at once. Two years to get responsible with driving before you can smoke, three years to get responsible with smoking before you can drink... I think I'm onto something.
