As if its drinks laws were not already infamous enough, Maryland's Montgomery County will now require ID from every single customer attempting to purchase alcohol in its county-run liquor stores. But what if you're 85-years-old, you ask? Sorry, show us that ID:
"Trying to buy alcohol in Montgomery County, Maryland? You should expect to get carded even if you're much older than 21.
Anyone who wants to purchase alcohol in the county should expect to get carded under rules set to go into effect in July.
Starting July 1, employees at all 27 liquor stories run by the county will ask for age identification for every person making a purchase, no matter their age..."
