Spring break is always highly anticipated, but all too often, this vacation can go from a time to kick back and have fun to a week ruined by drugs, alcohol, and/or disorderly behavior. Spring breakers can avoid legal and medical trouble by keeping a few things in mind. First of all, know what substances are legal for whom, and where. A medication or drug that is legal in one country may not be legal in a neighboring nation, leading to unaware young people being subjected to prosecution by laws, customs, or standards of the country they are visiting. In and outside if the United States, spring breakers should use alcohol responsibly, and respect local drinking ages and laws. Also, for your own safety and those around you, keep your wits: drunken, disorderly and violent behavior can cause injury or even death. Intoxication also makes one more vulnerable to sexual assault, theft and other opportunistic crimes. Have fun on spring break, but keep safe!
