The recently released Government Inquiry into Mental Health and Addiction has recommended the drinking age be raised from 18 to 20.
If the Government is truly committed to a harm reduction approach to alcohol, let’s focus on that. Let’s work on continuing to develop a drinking culture that fosters safety, understanding and maturity in young people, not one of prohibition.
We want to make it clear to both the Government and to MPs that young people are already taking the lead on developing safer and more responsible drinking habits. If you can vote, get married and serve abroad in the military at 18, then you should be allowed to have a drink.
