How is that different than anything else?

Ahem op if a bouncer gives you trouble and asks to see a passport just say you left it in the hotel safe so as not to lose it. Flash your fake Aussie ID and own it. Act like you belong and providing you're not trying to get into a trendy club or a starlet hangout you'll be fine.

As for liquor stores and dispensaries you can probably hook shit up from meeting people people at hostels etc.

What part of town are you stayin in LA? It's a big place.

snowvols Word of advice. Don't come to Utah if you are able to and you plan on drinking. They scan id's here and would require a passport to scan.

I'm going to San Diego, LA, San Francisco and then New York after a month of boarding in Canada for anyone who is interested.

Basically I'm asking how successful I'll be with only a proof of age card before committing to buying one.

and seriously? Just stay out of touristy areas like hollywood/highland and Universal City Walk. Well lit fancy sports bars with lots of big tvs might also be issue.

If you stick to dive bars and clubs and you will be just fine. And we're WAY more uptight about drinking and driving then we are about weed.

poutanen Just do your drinking in Canada. You only have to be 18 in Alberta, 19 in most other provinces, and our beer is way better!!!

Sassicaia can you fake the accent? Wouldnt that be a dead give away?

baldylox In NYC and LA you'll probably be asked for a passport.

snowklinger In NY and LA they are going to be more lame and you should just be discretionary and smart.

99% chance imo you are fine, but you should probably be prepared with a good exit strategy and not choose a bad spot. Stick to dive bars and such. If you are going to NY cuz you wanna hit the club scene, too bad your not old enough - find some raves to goto and then you can just buy drugs instead. I would steer clear of places with a line to get in.

California is pretty chill, especially about drugs, but on the east coast they will throw you in the slammer for the night and talk to you in the morning. Getting deported would probably suck.

I know u didnt say anything about drugs but you wanna drink underage and while I don't think its that big of a deal, alot of people in this country do. Binge drinking is learned in our high schools and continues past college, its an embarrassing culture we have here that kills alot of young people.

Good luck.

HoboMaster Be careful, I have international friends at school who have been accused of having fake ID's and asked for their passport (even when they were over 21...).
