Underage Consumption in Ohio

Underage possession or consumption of beer or intoxicants is a serious crime in Ohio.  The charges are first-degree misdemeanors carrying a maximum penalty of 180 days in jail and up to a $1,000.00 fine.  Worse yet, a conviction may leave you with a “criminal record” which is much more serious than a fine or costs.  Fear, shame or guilt may compel you to want to plead guilty to put the charge behind you, but that decision may have long-lasting and unintended consequences.If you are under 21 years old, drinking alcohol is illegal in the State of Ohio.  Ohio Revised Code...

Drug Testing for Children; Is this a good idea?

Image by Rob Shenk via FlickrSchools in Crawford County, Ohio, have implemented a random drug test policy for students involved in sports and extra-curricular activities. Five of the six districts in the County now permit the random testing.

Officials from the sixth district say the issue requires further consideration before it can be adopted, but they are not totally opposed to the choice.The U.S. Supreme Court has confirmed the legality of student drug testing in public schools in two separate split decisions. In each case, the majority has agreed...

Will said today.Speaking on ABC's "This Week with George Stephanopoulos," Will compared what has been happening with marijuana with the gradual changes in laws regarding alcohol, gambling and even prostitution. "We have legalized gambling in this country over two generations. It used to be considered a sin and a crime. With no national debate,...
