Legal drinking age raised to 21
Guam - Effective immediately, if you're not 21 years old you will not be allowed to purchase or drink alcohol anymore. Acting Governor Mike Cruz this afternoon signed Bill 389 into law this afternoon, so named for Ramon Oberiano, who was killed by a drunk driver.
The bill was passed unanimously by all senators during a legislative session last week. Oberiano's mother, Floreta, was at today's signing ceremony at Adelup. "It's a momentous occasion for Guam now that we are able to raise the drinking age from 18 to 21", she commented. The acting Governor also signed two bills that would change current law related to the hours when alcohol can be sold and penalties for those caught violating those changes.
Alcohol is now prohibited from being sold between the hours of 2 o'clock in the morning until 8'clock in the morning.
