I don’t see why not. I think most Kids who want to smoke are already smoking by the time they’re 13 or 14 years-old. You can’t really stop them from smoking, so the law is a bit of a waste of time. Daniel Robbins, 17
I don’t know. I think it’s OK to drink at that age if you’re with your parents, but maybe it’s not a good idea for 16-year-old to be able to actually go into pubs and buy their own beer. Paryinder Singh, 18
Personally, I think it’s a pretty stupid thing to do anyway. You think it’s a good idea at the time, but you have to keep it for the rest of your life. Immagine having the name of an old girlfrined or boyfriend on your body. Yes, I think law’s a good idea. Nina Lukic, 15.
I think that might be a bad idea. Most car crashes involve young drivers, so ther’s no reason to make things worse by changing the age from 17 to 16. Joss van Helder, 17
Some parents call their kids really ridiculous things that were popular when the kid was born, but sound really stupid when the kid grows up. So, yeah, I think you ought to be able to do something about it when you’re 16. Ken Mutawa, 19
It’s a difficult one. I think 16 is just too young to get married, but I don’t think the law ought to stop you really want to. It’s a personal thing. Angelina Scott, 17
