Underage Drinking in California
Underage Drinking & Juvenile Crimes
A young person is subjected to peer pressure on an almost daily basis. This can easily lead to a situation where he or she feels pressured to drink. In these cases, it is better to focus on how you can help a minor be rehabilitated instead of punished. Rehabilitation gives a minor a chance at a brighter future and actual help rather than punishment, which only leaves a minor facing fewer opportunities and a doesn’t actually address the problem at hand.
In California as in other states, the policy on underage drinking is one of "zero-tolerance." This means that a minor engaging in illegal activity with any traceable amount of alcohol in his or her bloodstream can be subject to legal penalties regarding underage drinking. As alcohol and drinking becomes more popular among the adolescent community, penalties for violating state standards regarding legal consumption become more stringent.
