    I’m 18 and can drink in Canada here. Can’t he just fly over? Anyway me
    being naturally Native American I’m surrounded by a community of drunks and
    drug users. So please do not hate me if I don’t choose to drink beer,
    because I do not fucking like it. There are actual 12 year olds here
    already drinking and shit. I’m friends with the rarity of teens who aren’t
    drinking or doing drugs. People are mad at us for that, hell the other day
    I was driving and some asshole loosened a nut on my fucking tire! Could’ve
    fucking rolled. Why would they do that? Well I’m doing something with those
    teens and kids hoping to create something that’ll take us outta here.
    Nearly done. I just hope our work and efforts pay off.

    The only reason for the differences in age is a lot of kids here when they
    turn 16-18 have a car and the united states is so spread out you cant
    really walk anywhere. While in europe you dont necessarily need a car to
    get around and can walk anywhere in major cities. Its basically to keep
    young drunk driving accidents from happening as much.

    You poor thing. You’re rich, famous, and a working actor but you can’t
    drink alcohol in America. This indeed should be what the media should be
    talking about.

  • amo0013 3 years ago

    These laws making up arbitrary ages saying when it is legal to drink… as
    if people magically become responsible in handling alcohol with that age…
    as stated here, in the UK it is 18, here in Germany you can drink
    low-alcohol like beer (i think up to around 10%) at the age of 16, the rest
    from your 18th birthday on… plain ridiculous, although drinking alcohol,
    at least in greater amounts, earlier in your life is quite detrimental
    especially for your brain on the long run… but since alcohol is a nerve
    poison anyway it really doesn’t change that it harms ones body, especially
    consuming it without moderation, not that most beverages with alcohol taste
    awesome(depending on what one likes) :D, just stating the facts

    I went to America when I was 20 so I had been drinking for a couple of
    years at that point. It’s really weird to look into a club and just see a
    bunch of people in their mid 20s kind of awkwardly swaying to the music and
    not being able to even enter a place like that.

  • DeilDevil 3 years ago

    Felt really bad for him for not getting the part of Peter Parker which he
    almost got actually… He is an excellent actor and have years of
    experience and movies to prove it. First saw him on The Boy in Striped
    Pyjamas when they show the film on our school and everyone in our class was
    bawling. Too bad for him for being waaay to tall and skinny which can be a
    disadvantage for young actors sometimes.

    What a whiny dude. No wonder why he isn’t playing spoderman lol. Marvel
    doesn’t like the alcoholic types.

  • A. Biyei 3 years ago

    what’s the point of legal drinking at 18, when the real fun is drinking
    under age!!! Play cat and mouse until you’re caught. Do some time in
    “juvi”,…. Learn social integration, study and get a job. Return to
    society with a different outlook!!!! DON’T START YOUNG LEGALLY.
