it is completely ILLEGAL. Your parents can get in a LOT of trouble. So keep it simple, only drink beer. Thats what im doing for my party. Nothing bad happens with beer.
Your parents can give you alcohol and you have to consume it while they are there. They can't just give it to you and you go crazy. If they provide alcohol for your friends however they can be charged. Your friends can only drink if their parents are there and they give their children the alcohol.
EDIT - So for all you people who know the Texas Law so we'll take a look
Â§ 106.04 â€“ Consumption of Alcohol by a Minor
(aâ€“b) A minor commits an offense if they consume alcohol unless they are in the visible presence of, and have the consent of their adult parent, legal guardian, or spouse.
Â§ 106.05 Possession of Alcohol by a Minor
(a) A minor commits an offense if they posses an alcoholic beverage.x
(b) A minor may possess an alcoholic beverage:
â€¢ while in the course and scope of the minorâ€™s employment if the minor is an employee of a licensee or permitted and the employment is not prohibited by this code
â€¢ if the minor is in the visible presence of his adult parent, guardian, or spouse, or other adult to whom the minor has been committed by a court
(b) An alcoholic beverage may be provided to a minor by that minorâ€™s adult parent, legal guardian, or spouse if they are visibly present when the minor possesses or consumes the alcoholic beverage.x
So it says right there, thanks and goodnight. But, that only applies to you, only your parents can give YOU the alcohol, not your friends. (like I previously stated).
I am not too sure if it it legal or not, but in North Carolina if a parent is caught giving their children alcohol even behind closed doors in the privacy of their home they may lose their license for a year.
Not sure about texas though.
No, it's illegal. Your parents could get into a lot of trouble. They would/could be charged with Child Endangerment and Providing alcohol to miners. You and the people caught drinking could have your license taken away, it will effect your future getting a job, and may other things. Even if your parents are there it's illegal.
No, it's illegal!
and your parents would be seriously punished if they gave you guys alcohol.
I am so utterly upset at your answers. In 34 states it is LEGAL FOR PARENTS TO GIVE THEIR CHILDREN ALCOHOL!
Texas is one of them, so is my state - Massachusetts. The only catch is a PARENT needs to give **THEIR** child the alcohol and then *WATCH* them drink it, in the PARENT'S HOUSE!
All other circumstances, yes, you're right it is illegal for a minor to possess alcohol. So, your parents can't give your friend alcohol. They can't give you alcohol and then let you go in the basement unsupervised. They can't let you serve yourself out of their fridge. You can't drink in your house when the parents are away. You can't take the alcohol they give you to a friends house and drink it there. It applies specifically to the case of a parent giving their minor child alcohol and watching them drink it in their own house. Your parents can't, legally, give you an alcoholic drink in your friends house, in their friends house, or in your grandmother's house. If your parents are divorced and one has custody, you can't drink in the other parents household even with the legal custodian present.
Fact of the matter is the law passed in 1984 which is tied to federal highway funding said that the PURCHASE, POSSESSION and TRANSPORTATION of alcohol by persons under 21 was illegal. It said nothing about drinking the stuff. Further, there can be statewide exceptions allowing possession. Some states may add in laws which forbit consumption, though these are rare. (In MA, there is no law which says minors cannot consume alcohol. They may not possess, purchase, or transport it. There also is no law which says people under 18 cannot smoke cigarettes. They simply cannot purchase them; posssession of cigarettes is generally unenforced even if it is specifically illegal).
Bad stuff can happen with beer, so you and Haley need to be careful. Laws are confusing so if you have questions you should, to be on the safe side, call your local police department's non emergency number and get the answer from them.
