    Not a good idea. You can't legally break the law just because you have a parental note saying that your underaged kid can consume alcohol.

    10 drink limit? ha If it was me I would definitely sneak some in. But I also think that this will significantly reduce Drunk Driving. From experience WVU cracked down on a street that had parties every weekend, and banned kegs from frats. In the last 2 years more students are getting DUIs and it's socially acceptable to drive drunk because of the situation. I agree with you that booze should be kept away from kids, but at the same time it's hypocritical to act as if alcohol will ruin kids' lives.

    These 18 year old children must not be able to join the military IMO. I had about 6 drinks when I graduated legally. I was smart enough to crash in my car rather than crash my car.

    Why not ? our politicians "legally break the law" all the time often with far flimsier excuses than "I had a note from my parents".

    For Example
    I seem to recall a certain Senator Daschle breaking the law recently and his excuse was what amounted to "I didn't know I couldn't do that", maybe if he'd have had a note from his corporate paymasters he could have gotten away with it. ;)

    It's a stupid law, anyway. And you know that they will drink EITHER WAY.

    Didn't have this problem when I graduated, everybody drank together before during and after the ceremony, because this is a normal 18+ country. But even my friends in the states, as soon as graduation ended, went over to a hotel and got absolutely hammered.

    2, given that they have already smoked 2 in the morning, and 2 in the afternoon.

    Uh...actually, there's very few laws that prohibit alcohol consumption by people under 21; I believe only seven states have such laws on the books. MLDA 21 is somewhat of a misnomer; the national minimum purchase age is 21, but those under that age are often permitted to legally consume alcohol. For example, minors in Texas can typically drink with parental consent.
