    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!

    The law(police) have taken all rights from the parents. We cannot punish our children, we tote them in cars to meetings, visit them in jail and pay rent when they are there along with lawyer fees, probation fees the list goes on. These laws are meant to squeeze money out of everyone. It makes for worse behaved children because the majority of the punishment is for the parents. Why do you think we have problems with the kids today. Ask the Govt.

    I think that the rule itself is fine, but we still have to remember that teenagers still have their whole lives ahead of them. There is nothing wrong with experimenting as long as nobody takes it too far. Remember that all us use to be kids. I think the best way is to consult with parents to see what best actions to take.

    people will do what they want no matter what you say the only thing to do is to give them a safe environment in which to drink so that they stay safe.

    you think that all kids drink but your wrong not all do i have friends that don't yes i also have friends that do. they do get there beer or vodica from other people. your not going to stop them from getting ordrinking it, it has been tried and nothing works. if we even lowerd or got rid of the age limit then teens to day would not drink they wouldn't think its cool because you wouldn't be rebel if they just let you drink no one would think anything of it. to them it would be like drinking soda noone cars.

    i think its cool because it lets teenagers have fun but also if we are emotional it relives stress.
