sapper82 BS: Mike's Hard Lemonade Breaks Up Family (29) RE: BS: Mike's Hard Lemonade Breaks Up Family 03 May 08

Didn't the bottle of drink carry a warning that it was an alcoholic beverage? Because of my work I often stick to soft drinks when staying away from home and the labeling of some "alco-pops" is very similar to many soft drinks.

The States seems to have a VERY puritanical streak in many ways.

There was also the case in, I think, Texas, where the legal drinking age is 21. The mother of an 18yo lad went to prison for supplying alcohol to him and his friends at his birthday party.

She made what a lot of us in the UK would consider to be a wise decision to provide a limited amount of alcohol in a controled and supervised situation to prevent their son and his friends from getting illegal supplies and possibly getting themselves into serious trouble away from the home.

The party was very successful and passed off safely, but she was apparently prosecutted when the parents of one of the other youths made a complaint.
