The problem is some kids have no chance in life with ignorant alcoholic or drug addicted parents God willing no parent has to get the call that some recent lax parents have gotten that their kid was the victim of drunk diving or died from a heroin or drug overdose . Being an athlete doesn't mean bad things will not happen. I have used the stupidity of a couple of foolish kids to remind my kids their bad chiices may have consequences


Not looking to chime in on the parenting/good kid-bad kid issues, just the law. Call it a pet peeve if you will but misstating the law drives me nuts. There is absolutely no statute in NY that criminalizes the mere fact that someone under the age of 21 has alcohol in their blood. the laws have to do with selling or serving alcohol to persons under 21 as well as possession with intent to consume. Additionally their are exemptions for parents - yes you can give you own child or ward alcohol - and those supervising educational classes where alcohol consumption is part of the course (say a college wine tasting course or a course in the police academy that demonstrates the effects of alcohol) as well as religious exceptions. maybe read the NYS Alcohol Beverage Control Law as well as the Penal law before stating what the 'facts' on the law are. See NYS ABC Secs 65 & 65-c; NYS Penal Law Sec 260.20


Don't Nassau/Suffolk have social host laws too? So it is legal to give alcohol to your own kid but not legal to allow others, right?


Completely illegal and parents can and probably will be arrested. Additionally, you will held civilly responsible for anything those people do after they leave your home.

I think the entire situation is unfortunate and I'm sure everyone involved wishes it had never happened. It did though and I believe some sort of punishment has to be given - whether it's suspension for a week or from a game or two, whatever. Otherwise what message is being sent to the boys involved and the rest of the school/high school sports community?

Set an example so it does not happen again

I think you sound a little ignorant sitting behind your little keyboard. As a parent of the team you expecting kids on the team to fail with drugs is extremely embarrassing. From what I've heard there were more involved and some got away with it, which easily could have been your kid. Maybe you should just hope your little angel whos never done anything bad in his life isnt next. Because I can tell you first hand as someone very familiar with these kids, your son probably had a blunt in his mouth after the loss last Saturday night, as 90% of the kids on the team did.

Lets face it GC parents your kid smokes pot, and if he doesn't smoke pot the only reason is because you uptight do gooders probably tell him how awful it is for your body when you have no clue what you are talking about. A little pot never hurt anyone, only enhances your childhood.

The whole team would probably fail a drug test if tested except for the few pussies who don't have the balls to light up with there teammates on the weekend. Those are the kids who really are bringing the team down.

If your kid wasn't involved he probably wanted to be involved and if he didn't want to be involved then he's probably not that cool and that's the reality in high school

I hope the AD or coach is reading this or that someone sends it to him or her. You are a GC parent venting and admitting you know that 90% of the team smoked pot last lost game. Someone needs to step up and address the overall drug use then. Thanks as a GC parent to fill us in on how much GC lax team smokes.

Pot/Herb/Marijuana are illegal. There is no excuse!!! It doesn't make a difference if you partook as a youth or even as an adult it is illegal. These boys broke the rules and the law. I am sure their parents understand the severity of the situation and unless you can identify yourself as a parent you should not be assuming what these parents are like and or what they do in their free time, and how they are handling the situation. Kids make mistakes and they are suffering the consequences of their actions. Some of the boys are committed and could lose their commit. We all were young and foolish and made mistakes. This could have been much worse for all and I am sure the boys have learned a valuable life lesson.

All parents of players should discuss this with their children and explain to them the consequences.

Like we used to say in GC...Divide it don't hide it. Rehab has since provided me with a different perspective though.

Just to add to the clarity of the law, a BAC of 0.02 under 21 first offense suspension of license for 90 days. Called NYS Zero tolerance law. This is for driving purposes.

You can serve "your" child alcohol all you want, under your supervision. Someone else's child you better have a lawyer ready.
