Students and alcohol don't mix

Students shouldn’t be allowed to purchase alcohol. There should be a rule about this because alcohol is something that students shouldn't be drinking. An ID should be shown if a person wants to purchase alcohol so that the cashier would know their age.

The Government should do something about this because I know that these are the students that are causing trouble here in the town area. There have been a lot of changes now because it was not like this many years ago. Many students have been influenced due to mobile phones. Students shouldn’t be allowed to purchase alcohol. What these students do will affect others. I would usually see students drinking here in the town area after school.

It is happening around Samoa and the Government should do something about students that are purchasing alcohol. Many of the youth nowadays aren’t being given enough advise from their parents which is why they are doing this type of stuff. There should be laws to put a stop to this and an ID should be shown when purchasing alcohol so they can know the age of the person.

The store is to blame. I am surprised to hear about this situation. An ID should be shown so that the cashier would know the age of the person that is purchasing alcohol.

I think these kids don’t listen to their parents which is why they do this type of stuff. Parents should teach their kids to avoid alcohol. There should be a certain age that people are allowed to purchase alcohol.

In my opinion, an ID should be made for people to purchase alcohol. The Government should make this type of ID so that the people at the store would know the exact age of the person that is purchasing alcohol. This will put a stop to students that are purchasing alcohol.
