If cocaine were legal, then youd have to produce ID for it.

I was filling a prescription for Oxycodone after a surgery, as I was checking out I decided to also get some Sudefed since I was already there, they asked for ID for the Sudefed after handing me the Oxy.

I went to home depot last summer to get a can of black rustoleum spray paint to paint the lamp post in my front yard and got carded by the checkout lady. I'm a 43 y/o living in the burbs. Did they think I was gonna go out tagging or something? WTF?

Home Depot required me to show ID to buy spraypaint.

But 5 gallons of hydrochloric acid, a pack of visqueen and a hatchet was cool with no ID.

Were you dressed as a smurf?

Wal-Mart will also card you for buying pipe cleaners. The cashier was just as surprised as I was and didn't bother asking me for my ID. He just punched in a made-up date.

So, to correct myself their POS will request a birthdate for certain items.

I went to walgreens to get some mucinex D cause I've been sick. They keep it behind the counter at the pharmacy. I had to show my ID and click "Yes" that I agreed to some terms and conditions on the CC machine. It was odd.

That's because most states regulate the sales of pseudoephedrine. You are allowed to purchase only so much in 30 days without a prescription. It's supposed to keep the meth-heads in line.

You don't need an ID for oxycodone because of the prescription. The prescribing doctor is supposed to know your age, weight, etc. to give you proper dose.

I got carded buying fuel system treatment at WallyWorld. I asked why. Answer (In Kentucky accent after conspiratorial look around): "It's got chemicals in it."

For a small electronics project I went to walmart, and bought a large metal file, a box cutter knife, and super glue. The ID required was for the super glue.

I was at the self checkout when an alarm went off saying I had to show ID. I looked at the lady watching the self checkout machines and gave her a puzzled look. She asked me if I was over 18 and I nodded and she cleared it. I still showed her my ID but said it was because kids huff it.

Also, that's why they lock up the baby formula. I asked about that before and they said kids can turn it into something that gets them high.

Really? I thought it was just because it was an often stolen item. A lot of places lock up shaving razors and batteries too for that reason.

I worked at a hardware store in my youth, and there was one time some guy stole a replacement razor out of a 5-pack.  The damn pack was only $0.25.  Jesus, WTF?  You can probably find that walking around the parking lot for 10 minutes.

How is producing ID going to prevent you from misusing it?

I have a friend that was a counselor at a youth treatment center for many years. Yes, they kept office supplies locked up for this very reason.

Welcome to abitrarily pushing-through-of-laws-and-regulations-in-the-interest-planning-board s-and-the-stifling-hooliganism.

The snap judgements, they rule our system at this time. I can't think of a well thought out piece of legislation or law that's come to pass in farking 40 years.

The broadly interpretable language built into every single farking piece of legal shizz I read these days makes me weep.

Because lawmakers are idiots. They think when you hit a certain age, you suddenly wake up responsible enough to do certain things. Drive, drink, see a R rated movie etc...

A while back when Sudefed was in the news big time and states were about to make it a behind the counter sign here for it kind of purchase, our local cosmetics type supply store figured 'screw this, we're simply not going to carry it any more'. And they put their entire stock out on a folding table marked down big time. Seeing that made me smile for days.

--- I've also noticed this particular chain seems to sell goodies just before they are yanked off the market or declared illegal in NJ. Pepper spray gadgets, tazer-like toys, you name it. I stop in monthly just to make sure I'm not missing out on something good before it gets yoinked.

I used to push carts at a Sam's Club. Someone left a bulk pack of Mach 3 razors under the kid seat of the shopping cart. That was eight years ago, and I still have some of them left. Saved me $18 or so.

The proper response to this sort of asinine demand for ID is to walk away and let them spend time restocking everything you abandoned at the checkout. The wage slave isn't going to care; they get paid either way. But when the employer needs to hire more people...

All the cash registers at Home Depot emblazoned with the name RealPos. It's usually pretty accurate.

Not if he got it out of the cart in the parking lot. It had already been bought then.

I'm always entertained at the places that have the razors on little lock-ended hangers. It always made me feel empowered to just rip a package down and pay for it without having an employee physically walk me to the counter. It's like those little metal slide-and-separate puzzles, sometimes it's fun to just rip them apart.

Still pissed at places that assume you're a criminal and make you sign in to buy cold medicine.

They lock up baby formula because it's hella expensive (relatively speaking) and stolen a lot. Since it's a non threatening powder I bet people *cut* drugs with it though...

I once saw this guy in Detroit beg a shop owner for formula for his girlfriend's kid on credit. The owner listened and then said if he could get his GF on the phone they'd make arrangements. Then the owner handed over the store phone after the guy stammered some phone dead excuse. Never reached the "girlfriend".

Gave the owner lots of props though. If a kid really needed formula he would've made it work.
