Facing drug charges can ruin spring break in California

It's that time of year when many college students put away their books and take road trips to the nearest beaches in California for some fun in the sun on spring break.

Those under age 21 are strictly prohibited from consuming any form of alcohol before driving, including products that contain it, such as most cough medicines or some prescription medications.
