I don't think it has gone through yet.
But if it does, most of it is unlikely to do a whole lot ot our drinking culture, methinks.

NO U :angry:

Research found that 92 per cent of New Zealand's heavy drinkers were 20 years and over, and 70 per cent were 25 and over.


Professor Doug Sellman wrote:Aiming measures primarily at youth while avoiding anything substantial that would reduce heavy drinking among adults is scapegoating young people for the country's heavy drinking culture and fails to address the main issue


Not to mention instantly losing a big portion of the voting population instantly for a long time.

I wish the politicians would spend a bit more time on more important issues.

I don't see any of those proposals making much differences.

Around and below my age, but all these laws are going to do is have more people making minor offenses than before, because they were already doing it with kids below 18, all this is doing is making the age bracket larger. And how exactly are they going to enforce the supply laws regarding the consent of guardians only?

Like Bugle said, a big waste of money for nearly nothing.

Totally agree. What a waste of time and $$$. Every 18yo has a 20yo friend, and as for the parental permission, so easy to fake it's not even worth enforcing.
