I am shocked! Minors drinking alcohol? Are we surprised? What about the parents that buy it for their own kids so when they get drunk, at least the "parents" can "supervise" in their own home.... Btw... I put parents in quotes because those kind of parents don't want to parent. They want to be cool to their kids and their kids' friends....
