It probably varies from state-to-state but here in IL, an ID costs $20 for adults, $10 for minors, and is free to the disabled. And its valid for 8 years. I suppose we can create another program for those adults that cant absorb the $2.50 annual average cost.

 

One other issue may be problems with supporting documentation for ID in some states.  Don't think anyone'll actually take a honest look at it, though, which is a shame.

Oddly enough, there was probably a vote to restrict those products to certain ages.

 

/not sure if serious:

 

National Minimum Drinking Age Act.

Smoking age.

Yeah, there should be an exemption for the military. Luckily I was in the Navy and when were outside of US territorial waters then we just follow the rules of whatever country we were making a port call to. I have never been "carded" overseas.

Nah, both should be same. If they think you're of sound mind to hand a weapon to, booze should be ok as well.  Of course, doubtful that the age for both to be true is 18 :lol:

Might want to check the bit past 1:52 of the Schoolhouse Rocks video where they talk/sing about bills going for a vote in the House and Senate. :p

That was my point. Arent 100% of bills ---> laws voted on?

And the Feds came up with the drinking and smoking ages.

Ahhh, I see now, I thought you were talking about the lack of a popular vote in the states on the law, that instead the states were forced to over-ride local laws or face funding cuts and I was just trying to be annoyingly funny.

So yes, you are correct! :)
