What else is there to do at weekends for 15-17 year olds, The local discos are full of 12 year olds and up even though it is strictly over 16 ya right. Cinema - cost 8 euro in and 8 euro for popcorn and a drink or 3.80 for a large drink rip off comparing to the us $10 including popcorn and seats that recline. Bowling ally, over 30 euro for a hours bowling at weekends from 6pm, Out of date games that eat €€€€ for a couple of min play. Youth clubs are ok if ya want to go but not many people are intrested.
Thats why most of them turn to drink and drugs.
What if they brought the leagel age to 16 like spain etc you dont see the young ones that drink falling over the place do ya , only the tourists.
