(IndyStar)   As the smoke over marijuana clears, Indiana can't quite decide if it has legalized a liquid cannabis extract or not. Even state excise police are confused. They raided 57 stores -- and then decided they shouldn't have confiscated the product   ( indystar.com) divider line

This reminds me of the convenience store that "became" a restaurant so they could sell cold beer which was a loophole in the state's blue laws.  They put out a couple tables and chairs.

The legislature had to call a special sessions to fix their oversight.

This state is looney tunes.

Somehow, Arkansas has what appears to be a thoughtful, solid medical marijuana program.

Indiana excise police think they are wearing jackboots, and not just about this oil. They routinely go into bars and demand IDs from every patron, clearly a violation of the 4th. I routinely hang out in bars for the sole purpose of wanting to be there when this happens so I can tell them to go fark themselves...and drink beer.

I've not seen that except near colleges.  And given the enforcement of underage drinking laws in the past ten years, I get carded more than ever because the bar doesn't need the excise coming in.  I'm 45 and look 60, so its not my youthful looks.

I have nothing to add but I just want to humblebrag that I still get carded too.

In Bloomington, the Walmart decided that they should card everyone, not just the person buying the booze. I was in there with a friend who was 55. I was 37. They carded him, the one buying the 6 pack of hard cider, and then me. I didn't have my ID on me (I had left my purse in the car), so they refused to sell him the cider. Crazy.

I'm 43 and got carded for a glass of wine in Ruby Tuesday over the weekend. In Indy no less. It's rediculous. I know I don't look anywhere close to my age, but come on. I don't look like I'm 12, either.

Yeah, I'm sure crafting confusing and contradictory laws was a complete accident.  It totally wasn't intentional, this disruption of the system, plunging it into years of battle in the courts.

That happened to me too.  I was with my fiancee and her son buying groceries and had a case of beer in the cart.  They asked for everyone's ID, even the 13 year old.  Absolutely ridiculous.  The manager grumbled about this being a stupid policy and finished the transaction.

They carded my 55 year old buddy in NYC a few weeks back a barcade for f-s sake. Its just a CYA now. Card everyone.

I show my ID unasked. It's been a habit since I was in my 30s.

I hate it when the places I frequent get shut down for not carding, so I'm not going to be part of the problem.

A couple of towns in the metro Atlanta area have (or had) a liquor ID law that required everyone to be carded. You should have seen the lady at the table next to us celebrating her 95th birthday when she got carded. She pretended to be very flattered. At least she had her ID with her.

Not an Indiana thing, but a brewery in Salt Lake put in a "lunch counter" so they could sell samples of their beer (to go with lunch, of course). Tiny little room that seats maybe 7 people, not comfortably, so make a reservation for when you're done with the brewery tour.

As a bartender I can tell you that the legal liability for selling to someone underage is enormous. Thousands in legal fees and potential loss of liquor license. Almost everywhere I have ever worked has had a no exceptions rule to ID. It eliminates any risk.

It's an issue of liability. The law is very punitive when it comes to underage sales, especially in New York state, so you end up with these no exceptions policies. The state liquor authority runs sting operations all the time so businesses are exceptionally cautious.

I never understand why some older people get so upset at having to show ID.

Think of all the time these cops wasted on that stupid project and other similar ones instead of fighting actual crime. I don't smoke, but I do think that they should just legalize it already, states that did not only did not fall apart but are doing better and liking the tax revenue.

No it isn't.

I believe that somebody told you that at some point, but that's so over the top that I actually checked your profile for a state and looked up the alcohol laws.  While it's possible that they've changed since the version I looked at, that's so far over the top as an actual law I find it extremely unlikely.

Feel free to prove me wrong, but you'll have to cite an actual law to do that.

Ok, who clicked "smart" on that ridiculousness?

A state medical marijuana card (which isn't a thing in Indiana) has absolutely nothing to do with federal drug schedules.
