I'd guess either someone just turned 21. Or they just turned 18 and are not aware that Canada no longert let'* people with US ID drink even if they're 18. So I've heard.

Just be safe. If you going to drink don't drive.

Be careful coming back into the States if you do drink over there. Your body is considered a container.

I wish the drinking age was still an issue for me.

He'll have no problem with driving. Some gas money and I'll drive since I don't drink, and getting back into the states is not an issue as we have never has a problem. The people at the border know that kids go over there to drink. They just watch out for the drunk driver'*. There are enough tolls there that the US makes the money on the way there and Canada makes the money while they are there.

good one

true story.
I can remeber when I turned 18 I was legal here for 2 days only.
and 1 of those days was a sunday Yes I remember the date. April 16 1979
so in other words I had 1 legal day to drink at 18
then it went to 20 then before I got there it went to 21. I had to wait 3 more years
to be legal
not that it mattered
