Not being able to buy beer until you are 21 is bull[crap].

It should be legal for all ages to purchase beer, porn and cigarettes.

Not in all provinces, intrepid. Quebec is 18, and I believe so is Alberta. Edit: Look slike Manitoba's legal age is 18, as well.
All others are 19.

Here's the logic:

It takes a certain level of maturity to drink responsibly.

It doens't any maturity to get a few slug through your chest (although I heard it helps).

Wheres RANT and his MADD connections? I think the reason why its different between AMerica and Canada is because we have a federal government that uses coersion on its member states. Canada's federal government got it right with this issue.

I know, ask anyone from anywhere in Canada if Quebec is part of the country and you'll get several responses. I personally think, in.

Okay, I'll be a little more sensible.

16+ to join army and buy beer and cigarettes.
13+ to buy porn.

Porn doesn't hurt a teenager. Beer and cigarettes do pose a health risk though.

Alright, but Manitoba & Alberta have legal ages of 18 to drink, as well.

That sucks. I grew up in N.S and B.C., 19 in both places. Dad should have been a farmer.

Id disagree, a health risk is a lot less important than having your idea of sexuality warped by pornography. And this isnt coming from a guy who goes to church three times a week, this is a guy who actually asked his girlfriend to wear her cheerleading outfit in the sack. Hmmm I wonder where I got that idea............?

Oh and that reminds me, on top of being that dirty guy I described above, I think I could make a killing selling porn and cigarettes to underage middle school kids in rich neighborhoods.

Man I have high ambitions.

i am 18 years old, i have registered for the draft and im going to work on ballistic missiles but i cant drink? what the hell is that. 18 should be the drinking age.

although in the navy the skipper of a ship can decide if his crew can drink 21 and under included if they come into a port where the drinking age is below 21.

My idea of sexuality hasn't been warped by pornography. I'm 13 and I download porn off the 'net all the time.

Have you been in a sexual relationship yet? You don't have to answer that. But I don't think you can say that it hasn't been warped until you've actually been with a person and see what it is you expect or hope to happen at that time.

Dead on. Look at me. You only realize how far youve gone until you realize what your trying to gratify yourself with.

LOL! I feel sorry for you and parrhesia. Porn couldn't possibly compare to some of the stuff the freaks I meet are in to. Its crazy.

Porn is a form of entertainment for me; it has not changed my mind on anything.
