Teen drinking law
It is now against the law in Victoria to serve alcohol in a private home to anyone under 18, unless their parent or guardian has given permission. This means that people like your friends' parents or older brothers and sisters can't give you alcohol unless your parents have agreed to it.
Don’t just believe what your friends tell you. Get the facts on drugs and their effects.
