    DRIVING & ALCOHOL

    If you are under 21 years of age and are in possession of an alcoholic substance, you can be found guilty of a class 1 misdemeanor. If you are under 21 years of age, it is against the law to drive or be in physical control of a motor vehicle while there is any spirituous liquor in your body (A.R.S. § 4-244(34)).

    A person under 21 years old who asks someone else to purchase, sell or furnish them with alcohol is guilty of a class 3 misdemeanor and could receive a penalty of a maximum of 30 days in jail, a $500 fine plus surcharges (A.R.S. § 13-802) and suspension of a drivers license or permit (A.R.S. § 4-241(D))

    A person under 21 years old who uses false identification to buy or be furnished with alcohol is guilty of a class 1 misdemeanor and could receive a penalty of 6 months in jail and a $2,500 fine plus surcharges (A.R.S. § 13-707) including suspension of a drivers license or permit (A.R.S. § 4-241(C),(E))

    chris, the reason the age limit for drinking is not because your body can't handle it, but because of immaturity reasons. having a 17 year old be able to buy alcohol is stupid. you are a lot more mature at 21 than in your teen years and are more responsible with alcohol.

    i think america is stupid for trying to make people wait until they are 21 years of age to consume alcohol. nothing changes in every single persons body when they turn 21 that makes them able to consue alcohol, so whats the big deal about?

    My mom die drinking and driving. She beeted me and my 2 brothers whenever she got drunk with her and her boyfreinds. She was a hoe. Fooled around to much with to many guys. We ate nothing but eggs and milk. Our mom couldn't afford buying us real food. She was to busy spending her money on men. SHe bought her own clothes. We hardley even get any. One day dad went for a ride with mom and they both got drunk. They crashed and never saw their eyes open again. It was a sad moment, but at the same time we were reliefed. No more beeting. No more strange men in our house. No more eggs and milk.

    I think if you're over 18 years old. Then you can drink at home w/ supervision of parents.
