Consumption of Alcohol by Minors
24Colorado’s exception requires the knowledge and consent of the owner of the private property when minors possess or consume alcohol (in addition to the consent or presence of a parent or guardian). Also, it is an affirmative defense to illegal possession or consumption that existence of ethyl alcohol in minor’s body is due solely to ingested confectionery or a beverage that contained less than 0.5 percent of ethyl alcohol by weight.
25 Delaware’s exception includes “members of the same family” and allows possession or consumption of alcohol by minors in the “private home of any of said members.”
