Well lets see in California you need to be

18 to: Buy Tobacco Work in a hazardous occupation or as a driver for pay Purchase pornography Legally have sex Become married

21 to: Vist a bar Buy alcohol Enter a strip club

Technically it is a misdemeanor when a minor is caught drinking although all a cop does is confiscate the booze or make you pour out the beer. People under 21 aren't technically allowed to drink alcohol at all but most people let their kids drink anyway when it's a formal engagment or such. The U.S. remains one of the few countries in which you can smoke earlier then you can drink.

You would think that it would be the other way around, since smoking can be so much more detrimental to your health than a few drinks.

You need to get really drunk to understand why it is fun, Pe.

Lacking control of my actions is not fun. I do enough stupid things as it is. I don't need something that makes me do even more.

Ciggs can't impair you as much as a few beers. You will die from a smoking, but it will take a long time. A few beers can impair you enough to get your self killed in a car accident.

Thats why you severely prosecute drinking while driving and such, not possession of alcohol itself.

That's where we disagree. Having no inhibitions can be a blessing and a curse. It just depends on who is there and what is going on that night.

Impaired? By a "few" beers? Preposterous. After two beers, I would be perfectly ok to drive home. It's when I go over that limit I get a designated driver or sober up.

...or you could just kill 300+ citizens, right Isreal? :p

Some people can tolerate alcohol well, and other can't. You may be fine after 2 beers, but others may not.
