    printer friendly version

    Question: Is there a fine for a minor to buy alcohol?

    Answer: A minor who buys alcohol is guilty of either a class 1 or class 3 misdemeanor, depending on how he/she was able to convince the seller to give him/her the alcohol.

    In addition to a fine of up to $500.00 plus surcharges, the court could also suspend or restrict your driving privileges, order you to perform community service, order you to go to counseling, and, probably worst of all, your parents are required to appear at court with you!

    Who cares if you can buy cigarettes at 18. They don't impair your judgment or motor skills like alcohol does. A majority of all crime involves alcohol. Why would you want to make something so clearly harmful to individuals and society more available?

    I think that what you said about lowering the drinking age to 18 would be better. If you can vote and get drafted into the war any minute from now that you can buy alcohol. It is so weird that you can buy cigarettes but you can't buy alcohol.

    Our government has it all wrong. Look at european countries, where alcohol abuse is much less common and teenagers drink responsibly. This is because alcohol is not made into a big deal there, and it is not forbidden. As we all know, the things you aren't allowed are the most appealing. I say lower the drinking age to at least age 18, because if you have the right to vote for your own leaders and laws and are eligible for draft into a war at any time, why should you not be entitled the full priveleges of an adult citizen? From 18-20 you can't drink, yet you are tried as an adult in court

    There have been studies that show that controlled comsumption fo alcohol (a glass of wine a day) is not only good for your heart, it is also good for your brain. See alcohol kills brain cslls, yes, however it attacks the weakest ones first much like a tiger attacks wounded or slower animals of a heard. So in turn drinking alcohol can actually increase some peoples brain power because a "heard" so to speak can only move as fast as its slowest member. So the brain can only work as fast as the slowest cell.
