The classic, debated topic among young adults has always been the responsibilities that ought to be granted to those that might lack a certain level of life experience. Should teens be able to make these decisions about certain subtances or occuations? We can’t forget that every individul has the right to make decisions within the law. But we also have to ruminate on how far the law should go. Obviously, if a person not “of age” plans to act irresponsibly and irrationally while bearing these rights, the laws currently in place are justified, not only through the protection of that individual, but also through the protection of others. On the other hand, some people are able to make mature decisions while facing these reserved privelages, which brings into question how far this restriction should extend. While I do believe this age-based legislation is appropriate, it doesn’t necessarily apply to every under-aged person.
