Hi

I live in the Netherlands, and we can drink beer and buy weed at 16.
We have to wait to 18 to drive though.
I would say this is a good sequence. The "drinking till you drop" has
been tried before you are allowed to drive a car, and everyone knows
where their limits are by then. Most do not care about these limits,
but they know the effects of alcohol.
Then again: my country is so small you can reach about everyone while
walking backwards on your hands on broken glass while blindfolded, so
there is no great need to be allowed to drive a car between 16 and 18.
I do not know enough of neuroscience to say wether it's wise to drink
a shitload at 16.
It apears to be wise to be allowed to buy weed. The Carver (something
in between a motorcicle and a car) is verry cool and could only be
invented in a country where weed is allowed (Top Gear said it).

Here (Spain) the... how do you say? the age to be of age? Ok, they are
adults at 18, for all things: driving, drinking, voting, owning property,
marrying, going to prisons (as inmates)... I believe there are some
exceptions, like heavy load, dangerous substances (like gasoline),
driving, that require two or three years of previous heavy load driving,
I think. You can not drive a car not being of age, not even accompanied.

I got my first driving license at 14 in Arkansas.
