If you are celebrating your 21st birthday in the next few days and wish to buy alcohol, you might want to be sure that you can actually buy before you proceed.
In this post, I will let you know if it is possible for you to buy alcohol on your 21st birthday.
There are certain things you cannot do in the United States within a certain age range.
A while ago I talked about how old you have to be before buying lighters.
Other concerned people also inquire to know if people must wait at least a day after their 21st birthday before they can purchase alcohol in the United States.
The eligibility of buying alcohol on your 21st birthday varies per state.
So you might want to find that out depending on the US states that you are located.
If your state’s legal drinking age is 21, one can be purchased at the stroke of midnight on your 21st birthday.
A friend of mine in Oregon shared how he heard these mixed stories of how people were refused alcohol because they have to wait for 24 hours after the dawn of their birthday.
It was a gathering of other people older than 21.
In my opinion, it is absolutely inconsequential to wait for 24 hours before buying alcohol legally.
If your attempt to buy alcohol at 21 is denied, let them know the time.
Also, request to see the manager in case of a continued denial.
You are legally 21 years old at the beginning of the day preceding your birthday.
The judiciary has decided on this.
They may feel less likely to get into trouble if you quote the law.
In conclusion, on your birthday, at 12:01 a.m., you can legally purchase alcohol. That said, I’m not aware of any wine stores operating that late.
But if you can find any, that’s fine.
