    Question: What is the maximum penalty for underage drinking?


    Arizona law (A.R.S. § 8-323) provides for the following penalties for a minor who purchases, possesses, or consumes, spirituous liquor:


    1. Probation.

    2. A juvenile court hearing.

    3. Driving privileges suspended for 180 days.

    4. Attendance at a counseling or education program.

    5. A fine of up to $500.00.

    6. Community service work.

    7. If truancy is involved, a whole host of programs with parents.

    8. With a prior record that indicates delinquency, a whole other host of headaches.

    9. A stern talking to by the judge. (Don't laugh, an angry judge is a very scary thing.)


    It appears that a judge can impose any combination of these things that she thinks is a good idea. Laws in other states are probably similar. The law about juveniles is never cut and dried.

    Hey whats the whole point of drinking i mean i admit my dad does it abit but seriously dont act cool and never ever drink unless its about 1-2 drinks for about 2 days a week meh my opinion heres to drinkers -=BEWARE=-: Stage 1 – A social lubricant? After one or two drinks (1-3 units), we're more talkative and our heart rate speeds up a little, giving us an 'up' feeling. This is the effect that people refer to when they say alcohol makes them feel more sociable. The 'warm feeling', or flushes, is caused by alcohol in the blood making small blood vessels in the skin expand, allowing more blood
