Q: Can you consume an alcoholic beverage on alcohol-selling premises with the consent of a parent while being under the age of 21 in the state of Nevada, specifically Las Vegas?
A: NRS 202.020 and NRS 202.055 specifically spell out when a minor can possess alcohol with parental, guardian or medical consent and presence or for religious reasons. 202.020(5) carves out specific exceptions to the general rule that possession by a minor is prohibited. Further, 202.055(2) provides an exception for parents, guardians or physicians providing alcohol to minors. For interpretation of these statutes it is best to consult with an attorney prior to engaging in any such activity. – Steven Mack, Esq.
