While alcohol is clearly a drug, it is quite weak and its main effects are immediate ones, never long lasting or damaging.
Even though I may choose friends who drink a good deal, that plays no role in my personal drinking choices.
Tolerance does not mean a change in brain chemistry, rather, it is really just getting used to drinking.
A couple of beers, twice a week, is not really any different to the brain at age 17 than it would be at age 21.
Alcohol is first a stimulant, then a depressant.
Gin, rum, whiskey and beer all contain different kinds of alcohol.
It takes about four drinks for a person weighing 100 pounds to reach legal impairment.
11. What does alcohol tolerance mean?
12. What are the penalties for a second MIP?
13. What are the two non-driving offenses that will cause you to lose your driver's license?(Check two) An MIP Providing alcohol to an under 21 A second MIP Using a fake ID to try to buy alcohol14. How many drinks would it take (in average 180lb. persons body) to produce a .08 Blood Alcohol Concentration (BAC)?
A second MIP can result in a criminal record.
Building a tolerance means you have actually changed your brain's natural chemistry.
A 12-ounce beer has the same amount of alcohol as a 12-ounce wine.
The younger a person starts drinking alcohol (up to age 21) the more likely they will have trouble controlling their use of alcohol when they get older.
A person under age 21 is legally permitted one drink in their system.
A person with an open alcohol container, sitting in the back seat, can cause the driver to be arrested even if neither one has had anything to drink.
Allowing someone to use your vehicle whose license is suspended is illegal.
Although the young drinker's brain may actually be changed by early alcohol use, it's no harder for them to drop drinking than it is for anyone else.
As one builds a tolerance to alcohol, earlier activities, meaningful or enjoyable at one time, and friendships, very strong earlier, can be replaced by alcohol.
A person that refuses a breathalyzer test can't be arrested for drinking.
Some penalties for totally non-driving offenses can cost you your driver's license.
Michigan drinking and driving violations can show on your driving record for life.
A smaller person will keep the same amount of drinks in their system longer than a larger person.
Three drinking/driving offenses, including an under 21, could lead to a prison sentence.
Penalties for providing alcohol to a person under age 21 can be greatly increased if an injury or death results.
Walking down the sidewalk after drinking, if you refuse the preliminary breath test (PBT), you can still be convicted of a Minor in Possession (MIP).
The younger I am the more alcohol can change my brain.
It is okay for an under 21 to transport a sealed, unopened alcohol container in the vehicle trunk.
