@17 Some of this "infantilization" is right in line with current and established brain research. It's not just random numbers in social policy. The modern human frontal lobe and executive functioning is still developing until ~22. Decision making processes are underdeveloped until then.

I agree with those above advocating aligning the substance purchase and military age. If done, I think it should be to 21 or 22ish.

The tobacco purchase age in Alaska is 19. A random number that I've never really understood.
