Education over legislation
Education over legislation. Increasing the age limit is an easy fix that won't work. How can we be legalizing cannabis and raising the drinking age in the same breath? Firstly how many deaths are people who are under age already? If the current age limit isn't stopping this why would a new one? Aussy tried raising the cost, it didn't work. And look at countries like the US with their age restriction. Is it working better than the German system at 16? No. Educate our kids. It's not the easiest option and it required a holistic approach and that how you know it's right. Btw this was written by a school teacher who spent 10 years in the hospitality industry.
