      The legal drinking age is 21. If you’re not 21 and drinking, you run the risk of getting in trouble.
      Wilson ran the risk and got caught. Plain and simple.

      The minimum legal drinking age in every state is 21. Decent society cares, And that is what sets us apart from those who are too immature to understand the risks underage drinkers take.

        @ bob, we have all heard your bible ranting and thumping and are all aware that you and yours are perfect and make no mistakes.
        So bob, can you tell us all what it feels like to sit on your assss and polish your halo publicly on a daily basis?
        So which brand of soap box do you and your family live in???

      Defending underage drinking, NONMORMON, is a sign of immaturity, and your rant is proof positive of the same.
      Hate and bigotry is a potent poison that only hurts the author. Give it a rest NONMORMON.

      Nonmormon, you are part of the small minority who minimize the dangers of underage drinking. Quit pouting and dry your eyes.

      He still broke the law! Regardless of what state you are in 21 is the legal drinking age! He could be a week from his birthday and it is still breaking the law!
