Police issue 14 underage drinking tickets at party in the woods

Many young people under the age of 21 drink alcohol in Philadelphia. There are various reasons for why they do it. Sometimes it may be peer pressure, or they want to fit in with a certain group. Other times it can be seen as a good way to relieve stress and have a good time. While underage drinking is relatively common, it is still illegal. Many kids drink and do not get caught, but many others do get caught and the consequences are more serious than one may think.

Many people in Philadelphia exercise their Second Amendment right to bear arms by owning guns. People own guns for a variety of reasons such as hunting or in order to protect their home.

There are also restrictions on where people are able to have the guns and if a person brings a gun to the wrong place, they could face gun charges.

Certain activities, like drug possession, will result in a punishment at home or school and may also result in a criminal charge against the child. If the child is formally charged, then they must go through the juvenile law system to determine their punishment.
