    The question is, are all citizens equal?  Or are some more equal than others?  If a kid is old enough to participate in decisions about how his community, state, and NATION should be run, then how can you say he's not old enough to make an entirely personal decision as to how to spend Saturday Night?  Age-linked Prohibition is just a continuation of traditional American Puritanism.  Furthermore it leads to situations like that reported HERE.  Undercover police going after college students with SWAT-team tactics for the sin of buying something that MIGHT LOOK LIKE beer.  We need to rein in the Security State apparatus, and this is a good start.
