If you’re found with a beer (or even the scent of beer on your breath) you may be looking at up to six months in jail and a $300 fine. That’s the worst case scenario, of course. The more realistic scenario is nothing more than six months of probation and a criminal conviction that could affect you for the rest of your life.
