Question by The Patriot: What is the right age for people to be exposed to alcohol?
‘Parents who have a “laissez-faire” attitude to their children’s drinking are putting them at risk, chief medical officer Sir Liam Donaldson has claimed.’
“Sir Liam said that people who allow their teenagers to drink alcohol with friends could be storing up problems, while middle-class families who dilute their children’s wine are also misguided.”
In the UK, where this question was asked from, the legal age is 18.
Answer by Finceltic
The drinking age should be at least 21
