Would you be in favor of a plan that makes people get alcohol consumption licenses, similar to driver`s licenses that can be taken away, so that drinkers will be more responsible?

Well, in a way it makes sense. If you're in jail, or on parole, you can't vote. Previous crimes can undermine your access to the most sacred of rights, so I don't see why this would be a big deal, assuming you've shown a serious pattern of alcohol abuse, as in DUI's. I don't know if we should be moving in that direction, though, since I don't agree with legislation that suspends voting rights. I really don't know how to answer this. My gut instinct is to say no.

With anti-smoking laws, obnoxious drunks and frivilous lawsuits to worry about, I think bartenders have enough to worry about without checking a person's drinking license.

NO! That's just retarded. Stop trying to take away rights!

That's all we need is more government! Soon we'll need a license to pee!

No. I wanna be able to drink when I get older without needing a license! I agree with twistedapple.

It sounds like a good idea, but I can't see how it would work. It's easy enough for people under age to get alcohol, so it'll be just as easy for people without a drinking license.

I think that would be a dumb idea - one of those laws that just creates more "crime" rather than fixing any problems.

oh hell no. people would find ways to still drink without a license.

Extremely stupid idea, it would never work anyway.

either illegalise it or don't

hmmmm.....its an idea that looks good on paper but probably wouldn't pan out IRL.

the right would still be there. but it would be excercised more responsibly. maybe if that happened there would be fewer crashes caused by drunk drivers.

or not. it might work at first, though.
18 yrs ago, 9 mos ago - Friday 12/26/03 - 10:26:33 PM EST (GMT-5) woudlnt work liek they said...i know plently of ppl who drink underage..and i'm only ya.

Considering all the people who have lost their lives to drunk drivers, yes. Sure, you could still work around it by getting other people to purchase it, but then they would have a good reason to make punishments even harsher.

people are going to drink no matter what you do. people drive without licenses so people will drink without them too. we've already tried prohibition and we saw how that didnt work.

That's stupid. The picture is funny!
17 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Saturday 11/20/04 - 5:02:14 PM EST (GMT-5)
I don't think it would work, could be a good idea but people are going to drink regardless.
