The situation in Sweden is exactly the same, if not even you are controlled and triple controlled everywhere with everything.There was a real hard battle to stop the EU descision to allow legal import of spirits from other EU countries ending that we now can import but we are supposed to pay double taxes.

Oddly enough, none of the sites I've been to that actually sell spirits have this silly age requirement. You can browse these sites all you want and apparently even order from them without entering your age. They just say an adult signature is required upon delivery.

In the US, Anheuser Busch has been reprimanded for packaging alcopops to look like soda and then claimed that they were not targeting younger drinkers. The packaging was so ambiguous that many convenience store clerks didn't even know the product was alcoholic. Of course they denied claims that they were marketing to kids while they pulled the product and repackaged it.

When I dream up a better job, I'm going to take it. In the meantime, the research continues.

Speaking of which, I thought the legal age in canada was 18?
No...the majority of provinces are 19 with the exception of Quebec which is 18.
