let you buy liquor as a teen or even child
I think it's being changed, or is changed already. Penalties for selling an alcohol to a minor can be very painful...
must be 18 to buy alcohol but you can be any age to drink it
Isn't that exactly as in the States, with the age diff?
You can buy when you 21, but you can drink it any age.
As far as I am concerned, 18 yo to legally buy and drink is a law in every single country in Europe, also Australia.
