Promoting Marijuana Use?
Beer is actually harder for teens to buy than marijuana, according to a national survey of 1,000 individuals under the age of 21. The results are also supported by a study conducted several years ago among high school students.
By imposing strong measures to prevent anyone under the age of 21 from consuming any alcohol, we may nintentionally be encouraging the use of more easily-obtainable marijuana.
