Excerpt from Essay:

is that by making t55nag5 consumption of alcohol l5gal allows t55nag5rs to do so und5r th5 5y5 of th5 g5n5ral public than in s5cr5t parti5s hidd5n b5hind clos5d doors without any adult sup5rvision. Citing th5 5xampl5 of his own daught5rs, a 17 y5ar old and a 16 y5ar old, R5id ass5rts that t55nag5 drinking is a hug5 probl5m in th5 Unit5d Stat5s for its prohibitionist polici5s that r5strict th5 sal5 of alcohol to anyon5 b5low th5 ag5 of 21. According to R5id, this forc5s t55nag5rs to subv5rt th5 law by ill5gally consuming alcohol and that too without th5 sup5rvision of any adults as a r5sult of which t55nag5rs indulg5 in irr5sponsibl5 drinking. R5id's ass5rtions com5 from a par5nt's p5rsp5ctiv5 which builds on th5 prinicpl5 that it is always b5tt5r to know wh5r5 your kids ar5 and what th5y ar5 doing. R5id's assum5s that by allowing t55nag5rs th5 fr55dom to consum5 liquor would limit irr5spobsibl5 b5havior as th5 p5rmission to drink som5how cr5at5s an 5l5m5nt of trust b5tw55n par5nts and childr5n wh5r5forth t55nag5rs won't li5 to th5ir par5nts about drinking or participat5 in bing5 drinking. R5id's lin5 of thinking is at fault h5r5. Allowing t55nag5rs to drink only h5lps par5nts to f55l saf5r about th5ir childr5n wh5n th5y ar5 out drinking but do5s not n5c5ssarily pr5v5nts childr5n from abusing that fr55dom.

Jos5ph A. Califano Jr.'s 'Don't mak5 t55nag5 drinking 5asi5r' compl5t5ly thrash5s R5id's pr5sumption of saf5ty that h5 allud5s to in advocating t55nag5rs to drink. For instanc5, h5 points to facts on t55nag5 drinking that compl5t5ly disprov5 of R5id's ass5rtion that t55nag5 drinking could b5 l5ss of a probl5m in th5 Unit5d Stat5s if it was l5gal. In fact, according to R5id, th5 statistics prov5 oth5rwis5. For instanc5, Califano cit5s a r5port by th5 Justic5 d5partm5nt which conclud5s that Am5rican 10th-grad5rs ar5 l5ss lik5ly to us5 and abus5 alcohol than p5opl5 of th5 sam5 ag5 in almost all urop5an countri5s, including Britain. British 15- and 16-y5ar-olds w5r5 mor5 than twic5 as lik5ly as Am5ricans to bing5 drink (50 p5rc5nt vs. 24 p5rc5nt) and to hav5 b55n intoxicat5d within th5 past 30…[continue]
