The State of Maine Plans to Crack Down on Underage Drinking Using a New App
Times are changing, and the State of Maine is trying to keep up with the rise of scannable fake IDs that look totally legit and keep alcohol establishments out of trouble.
The State Bureau of Alcoholic Beverages and Lottery Operations are working to create an app to help establishments that serve double-check IDs and help deter selling alcohol to minors, according to an article by WMTW.
The app is called "Age ID" and will be based on a nationwide database of valid driver's licenses and IDs, the article states.
I'm assuming that you'll still need to have a valid ID on hand before you can be served, but it would be cool for the times you forgot it and didn't have to play it sober for the night or run back home.
But my major question is how this could potentially affect the growing state legal distribution of recreational cannabis?
