And most teens will probably blow this one off too. Unfortunately there are millions of teens who aren't quite as stable as you or me, and those are the one that this impacts.
Besides, I was merely giving a scenario of what could happen. I've got no proof that it did. That's beside the point though. There's laws for a reason, and they should be followed. Sure we all speed now and then, but think of all the accidents caused by speeding. Think of all the deaths caused by drugs. They don't just make up these laws to piss people off.
No, they make laws for a variety of reasons, one of which is to enforce morality. I, for one, would prefer to decide for myself. If a kid is properly parented, Phil Rudd's behavior isn't likely to have much impact on him. If a kid isn't properly parented, Phil Rudd's behavior isn't likely to have much impact on him.

I would just as soon people leave their laws off of my life, and I will take care of my own.
