    I remember when I was in my mid teenage years I could even buy vodka which was 46%.
    Now surprising things are happening and some "iconic" brands on market here started to make alcohol which is under 37% which means it can't be called vodka anymore lol...

    Now I'm reading about Jennie being new face of some soju brand, and I've checked history and it also decreased amount of alkohol in it in last few years...

    Yorobun what's going on?!

    Are they changing it just to make us drink/pay more?

    you are legal when you are 18 but here in Europe you can buy alcohol in many shops when you are 15-16 and look matured enough

    What is written here is totall BS. Cashier have to ask for your passport if they can't distinguish you between teenager and adult. A lot shops in my town for example only let you buy beer (since this is legal to buy at 16 here) but no mather if you are an adult or not they often check your passport till you are 24-25 and rarly even over that age cause it might happen that there is the rare case of a let's say 28 years old looking like 16. My 28 year old cousin as example was asked for her passport till she was 25. As she was 18 and had her first child she said to a cashier once "I am a mother, I have my own apartment, I can drive and you ask me for my passport?" the cashier said "you could be a teen-mom, got allowed to live alone as teen by your parents and as teen you can drive with an allowed person sitting next to you in the car so you tell me what?" Cause I look very young I was still asked for my passport till around 22 years old. Many stores also have a sign nearthe cashregister that says you can look older as you're actuall age so they will look at your passport if you want to buy anything that has more alcohol than beer has

    Wait passport to buy alcohol? never heard of it in Poland/Czech/Slovakia, and I also was in Austria, and Italy when I was below adult age and I bought beer, wine, and Absinth there. No one even asked about ID.

    If you look old enough you can get into clubs, buy tabaco and alcohol (no need to show any id)
    Thay said
    Here in the uk i had to even show my id when i wanted to buy some of those sparkly sticks fireworks (and you only need to be 16 to buy them so wtf)
    They almost didn't believe my age when I showed my passport

    Good thing I don't drink alcohol because it would be a total pain to get it each time

    In the uk they even ask them for energy drinks when in spain teens buy them as if it was normal fanta or coca cola

    In my country, we normally use driver's license to prove we are old enough to buy alcohol.
    But because I don't have a license, I have to use a passport. (even though I actually never buy alcohol)

    Too much alcohol makes people do stupid things? Or they were afraid of people setting people on fire with beverages lol
    Anyway, smoking weed is better.
