priggish assholes legislating morality kill culture

It doesn’t surprise me that the Daily Star now supports banning anyone under the age of 21 from bars. It’s warming to see a couple of commenters made it through to call them to task, one on government control and another asking the Daily Star to hold businesses responsible, not just the citizens under the age of 21.

Putting the drinking age at 21 was shortsighted in the first place. Please consider when the rise in casual drug use happened… when the drinking age was raised from 18 to 21. My real problem with the legal drinking age of 21 doesn’t even have to do with a love for alcohol. When the age went from 18 to 21, the live music scene for original music essentially died down and never really bounced back. Dropping the age now isn’t going to fix anything, but priggish assholes legislating morality kill culture.
