Did you ever buy alcohol at a liquor store or drink underage?

Never tried to buy it myself underage. Just have had other people get it for me.

I keep getting carded. Least like 3 times in the last year or so which have been the occasions I try and cop. Kind of annoying really. It's not hard to find a connect, at least in my area.

Do you really think I would mess with alcohol illegally?

Not illegally. I was either with my parents or husband, aka "legal guardian" for legal purposes and thus legally allowed a glass of wine or Jack if I wanted it.

Yeah, I figure if I'm older than 18 it should be up to me, and I'm a responsible guy.

Lol that's mad weird wth. I get carded only half the time and I'm 20.

But to be fair, I was at a liqueur store. But dude was mad apprehensive as was lol

Liquor stores aren't state controlled?

10/16/13 6:29 pm

I'm not educated enough to say, but I wouldn't assume so. I live in a dope area for copping alcohol underage. It's a poorer area, but not too much crime. So a lot of rules get overlooked.

Beach, each state is different. I'm guessing VA controls it's liquor stores, as does Utah and others, but where I live it isn't that way.

BeachSt Coastal Virginia
10/16/13 10:17 pm

Yup. Liquor is sold in ABC stores and most beer and wine is sold in grocery stores. The highest alcohol content I've seen in a grocery store is 8%, and it was one of those drinks in the hard lemonade section. Everything else is state controlled.

10/16/13 10:20 pm

That's how Utah is (or at least very similar). MO is not however. Utah was the first state I had heard of that ran it's liquor stores that way, but I guess it works.

BeachSt Coastal Virginia
10/16/13 10:23 pm

It works with selling to underage drinkers. My mother wouldn't even allow me to walk into the ABC store when I was little. I've still never been inside the front portion. I have been in the back to get free, sturdy liquor boxes.

10/16/13 10:24 pm

Idk what state law is, but liquor stores in my area don't really care lol. Unless there's a morally sensitive clerk (for lack of better phrasing), it's not hard to cop alcohol in my area. If I can't myself (although I look older than I am), someone

BeachSt Coastal Virginia
10/16/13 10:24 pm

Most durable boxes ever. If you're looking to move, I recommend them. People might look at you like you're an alcoholic, but it made life so much easier.

BeachSt Coastal Virginia
10/16/13 10:26 pm

Maybe it's a south vs north thing on that front? Because like I said, and I kid you not, my grandfather is carded every time. State law says that they are required to card you if you look younger than 27 or 30. One of those two ages...

Nope :) I don't really have any desire to either, I've seen the effects it can have on people (both positive and negative), and the cons highly outweigh the pros in my opinion.

First time I bought booze and got into the bar I was 15. Before I turned 21 I only had 1 incident of difficulty buying alcohol. I thought I was sooo cool (because I was) lol.

Not really, sips of my parents drinks here and there and a splash of wine once a year...
The first time I tried, I spilt my drink. It was fragrant, so I got worried, dumped the rest, and frantically tried to clean my mess...out of the carpet.

Well, the only point of drinking is to get drunk. And then you just drink it as fast as possible. The more you drink the less awful it gets... until the next day.

Drinking to get drunk sounds terrible! I would never approve of losing control of my body like that. I drink for a good time. It makes me hot, though, so I don't do it often.

Saying you don't drink to get drunk is like saying you "don't smoke weed to get high."

There's a difference between getting blackout-wasted and getting drunk.

BeachSt Coastal Virginia
10/16/13 6:11 pm

Why would I want to get drunk? I'm not an alcoholic. I grew up where the male in my family would come home, have a beer, and watch the news. There was no drinking to get drunk. That doesn't sound fun to me.

JiveYoungKing The Banter Boy

I smoke weed strictly because it may connect me with my inner spirituality. But that's just me.

I drink to get drunk. But I'ma punk ass 20 year old. Even then, I can control myself. It's just a fun experience. Drunk and blacked out are two different things in my opinion.

Or we could have different definitions of drunk? Do you consider a buzz to be drunk?

I love the taste, and drink for the taste... Never been more than buzzed, and usually don't even get to that point. I'm a very slow drinker though.

3 months or so. January 20th is my birthday. Didn't stop the clerk from damn near having a heart attack. I dead up laughed with all his apprehension. I know he could've been in deep sh*t, but I don't look like a cop or nothing in the slightest

I'm gonna be 21 in a couple months, and some dude practically sh*t himself when I tried to get some beer. It was pretty hysterical. He told me never to come back to that place after he sold to me. And it was local, I live like 5 blocks from the place

When you consider the trouble he'd be in if you were the wrong person or the wrong person found out, that's understandable.

My mom and her brothers used to steal beer from the distributors when they were making shipments, at all of 14 years of age.
