My Shady Life as an Underage Drinker
Nick Tucker

Unfortunately for you the US has strange relationship with alcohol, prohibition pushed money into organised crime and has left a legacy of the state putting booze on a ridiculous pedestal. I grew up in the UK where 18 felt late to start drinking! We don’t have it right here either as binge drinking is a problem, I reckon places like France and Spain have it right by just not making booze a big deal. You can get beer out of pop machines in Spain and hardly anyone binge drinks there! Hang in there dude, or maybe try brewing your own :)
