Penalising responsible drinkers is not the answer to binge drinking culture
Many western countries such as France where I live, have far cheaper alcohol, and are far more relaxed about age - No-one gets asked for ID. In these countries, people generally drink more responsibly, there is not the same kind of binge drinking culture, and getting smashed is not something to boast or brag about at all. Others in this thread have suggested change in culture, through education, and I completely agree with that approach. Penalising responsible drinkers is not the solution.
