Florida Bar's Guide to Being an Adult: "Why Can't I Drink at 18?"
Am I an adult now?
Flickr user: andrew_mc_d
For those darling kids who just turned 18 and have no idea how to operate themselves, the Florida Bar is here to help. The smarty-pants lawyers have released an exquisitely worded pamphlet to guide the state's "new adults." In a mere 30 pages, the booklet addresses pressing questions such as:
"What Happens If I Drive After I Have Been Drinking?"
"What Are the Penalties for a Fake ID?"
Sadly, the answers are not nearly as fascinating as the questions, but there are a few gems. My favorite describes the "seemingly minor" actions that can result in felony charges, such as to "unlawfully spray a fire extinguisher, or falsely report child abuse."
