In my experience, if you're under 21 and get busted for drinking, the overwhelming probability is that you or somebody you're with have done something incredibly stupid.

If you do the responsible drinking thing (DON'T drive, DON'T be incredibly loud in a residential area, DON'T stumble around in public acting retarded, etc), there's almost no chance that you'll get caught because the police aren't about to door-to-door LOOKING for under-age drinkers... or pot smokers for that matter.

Almost any cop will tell you they have much more important things to be doing (ie: arresting violent criminals).



Now maybe it's just me, but I personally feel that my own damn lead foot is a lot more responsible for my speeding tickets than the officers who wrote them.

But that's me.
