I never understand.... why aren't underage drinkers charged with some kinda illegal obtaining alcohol or something too?

It is not a crime for someone underage to be drunk, only to be under 21 and buy alcohol or give it to others. There can be statutory civil consequences to being drunk under 21, but not general criminal consequences. BTW does this country really need more people in jail?
