Pretty sure it's all three, but the possession part is tricky, because when I was underage, going w my dad to a liquor store (not buying for me lol), I would offer to carry the case of beer out to the car, so he could unlock it-

Back, before keyless entry/remotes etc. some places didn't mind me carrying it out, but some places would stop me and say I couldn't carry it out, etc etc. I'm carrying it, but it's not mine, I didn't pay for it, and I'm not going to drink it..

I've never been underaged in Florida. I don't really know what the law is here, but it's probably all three. They're pretty big on "no" here.

In Nebraska, if the kid is at home with their parents they can drink... not sure how much or if there is a certain age

from the information I have been able to find, the answer is:

All of the above (with a few specific exceptions and caveats).

Definitely illegal for underage people to buy, for adults to buy FOR underage people, and for stores to sell to them and bars to serve them. Not sure about possession alone. Consumption imo illegal.

When I was a lass it was legal to drink at 18 and to die in VietNam and illegal to vote. Now it's illegal to drink but legal to vote and die. Can someone make sense of this nonsense? No! Damn it, if you can die in war then you can drink!

I guess it depends on the State, though I would assume for most states it's the same age for all of the above.

I think it depends on the state, but may include all of furnishing, possessing, and drinking it. With some exceptions in some states for private residences/parties, and for serving it (with age restrictions).

It's legal for parents to give it to their kids like at dinner or special gatherings right??

It depends on the state. Ohio it is, but I know the day before I turned 21 I was in NC and had dinner with my Mom. Couldn't get a drink because that would have been illegal there.
