Legal Age Of Buying Alcohol In The UK Should Be Lowered To The Age Of 16 sign now

Why at age 16 are you allowed to be sexually active, buy cigarettes, leave school, leave home, get a full time or part time job, but not allowed to buy alcohol?

It seems strange that the UK government allows people under the age of 18 to be able to have children, which could, if the mother or father decides that they are not ready once pregnancy occurs, cause strain on themselves both mentally and or physically. Buy cigarettes, which is proven to have a link to cancer and subsequently death. Leave school, with the possibly of no qualifications and no future educational prospect. And leave home, with possibly very little money and in the case of lack of money, very few places to go.

So if, at the age of 16, people are allowed to do all of the above, with the risks involved with each, why are people not allowed to buy alcohol until the age of 18?

The government would have increased profit through taxes.

There would be fewer people trying to buy it illegally therefore shop keepers would not have to worry about loosing their licences.

The teenage population would be exposed to alcohol at a younger age instead of waiting until the age of 18, therefore teaching them that, in larger quantities, it is not good for them.

Still asking yourself why the age for buying alcohol is 18?

Sign this petition for the age of buying alcohol on licensed premises to be lowered to the age of 16.
