    Agreed. The issue is making sure that responsibility for their actions is enforced. I’m all in favor of mandatory jail time for any DUI that causes a wreck. There’s a reason Germany has a thriving local Gasthouse industry. If the penalties are too severe to chance then maybe you’ll drink at a place that you can walk home from.

    is it just me, or has anyone else ever noticed how often plymouth police show up at “drinking parties”….

    seems as if they hear about a party, they find a reason to bust it up.

    Yes, this is an issue, but I am not sure where the right point on this is. Perhaps for some age won’t matter when they start drinking if there is nothing between the ears regarding responsibility, so in that case what would it matter.

    Perhaps the right solution would be to lower it to 18. Other countries have this at that level, but make the penalties for abuse significantly harder for people under 25 (Germany for one). Maybe that would be a way of taking care of the problem. The responsible ones would be rewarded for being law abiding and we would catch the others earlier.

    This is an issue.

    Old enough to sign contracts, old enough to drive, old enough to die for your country. Not old enough to drink or smoke.

    We need some consistency here. Either say they are old enough or raise the age for all of it to 21 and tell them they are children until then.
