USA Lesson #1- The Law

"All about America" lesson #1-- THE LAW!

1. The legal drinking age in Washington state is 21; this is NON-NEGOTIABLE!
So you have 2 choices:
a.) Stop drinking NOW to get your body over the withdrawals that you will most likely experience;
b.) Drink Up between now and 29 September!

Of course you know which option I personally recommend!

Just remember.... IT IS ILLEGAL to drink ANY and ALL alcohol while you are in the U.S.


2. The legal age to buy AND to smoke cigarettes is EIGHTEEN!
Even if the cigarettes belong to someone else, you CANNOT smoke one in public. You take the chance of getting a ticket...and yes, they really do give tickets for this in the US!

So just think of it this way...
no drinking....
no smoking....
that HEALTHY LIFESTYLE will make up for all the CHEAP FAST FOOD you are going to eat while you are there!

3. Curfew... any idea what that word means??!!
Yep, there is a CURFEW in Lynnwood--- 10pm on weeknights and midnight on weekends! So BE AWARE! :-)
