    I went in to buy a a bottle of scotch for my cousin for his birthday. I go up to pay and hand them my ID. Since I have a non-driver's license ID they almost didn't let me buy the scotch, and it's a legit ID. They thought I drove there or something. Maybe it could be because I look and sound 15, too. They asked me who brought me, and I told them my mom did and had to show them her car. What if I walked there? would they not sell it to me?

    The bars I frequent and the strip club accepted the card with no problem many times. The bartender at the Chinese food resteraunt never cards me.

    State ID's (non driver) are the easiest ID's to get illegally, and are thereby pretty suspicious to begin with. My friend in high school doctored a birth certificate to show he was 21, then got a real state id saying he was 21. No problem.

    Also, liquor stores are getting a lot of pressure on selling to minors. That store might have recently gotten fined, so they may be on their best behavior.

    I work in a wine/liquor store and unless a person with a non drivers license ID is old enough that you can pretty much tell without a reasonable doubt we dont sell to them. Those ID's are a dime a dozen out there in the fake market. It may be legit but not worth the risk. Selling to minors gives the store a HUGE fine, and not to mention the person selling it gets arrested. I know someone at another store it happened to. Not worth the trouble

    You mean that if a store clerk sells liqour to a minor because the minor illegally obtained a fake ID then the clerk goes to jail? I would think that the minor should go to jail and not the clerk.

    Well I'm legal. Have been for a year and a half. I'm just surprised that everywhere but this one place accepted it. I'm even more surprised the resteraunt has never carded me.

    Again, Stephan, this store probably got busted for selling to minors. State Liquor Control boards are actually doing stings on store, sending in high school students with fake id's to buy liquor. Some store, bars and restraunts card everyone. Ameristar Casino in Kansas City got busted for letting a minor gamble on board, even though he had a fake ID. Ameristar now cars everyone who doesn't look like they are 30. It's called over-reaction for protection.

    And yes, even if the ID is real, the store can get in trouble, and the clerk, as well. Kinda like the old "She said she was 18" rule involving dating younger women. It's still illegal, even if you thought you were ok.

    Yea, I understand it. I haven't read in the newspaper about this place being busted. Maybe I missed it. I guess when I get my driver's license the place won't be so hesitant.

    hmm, perhaps another reason why the gov't should issue national IDs

    Yep if you sell to minors you can get arrested. Its happened on more then one occasion in a few stores here in NY.
