The age requirement for drinking, voting, and driving often varies across the globe. In Japan, you can drive at the age of 18, but you officially become an adult at the age of 20.


Meanwhile, in the US, you can drive in most states at the age of 16, vote and buy tobacco at the age of 18, and drink and buy marijuana products at the age of 21.
