Daniels signs measure changing Indiana alcohol ID law

Back to TopCommentsE-mailPrintBookmark and Share

Indiana Gov. Mitch Daniels has signed several new more bills into law, including one that will no longer require everyone buying carryout alcohol to show identification regardless of age.

Daniels signed the law Friday that states only those appearing younger than age 40 must be carded, starting July 1. Current law mandates carding of all individuals.

Daniels also signed a bill requiring Indiana retailers to use a computerized tracking system to identify those buying cold medications used in making methamphetamine. Stores selling ephedrine or pseudoephedrine products will enter the identity of customers into a multistate database that limits how much a person can buy.

Daniels vetoed a bill dealing with forfeitures, saying it went against the state constitution to take much of the proceeds collected through forfeitures and use it for purposes other than a school fund.

    It's all about how you can't be trusted, your neighbor can't be trusted, you're too stupid to do anything right... So quit using your brain, do as you're told; you live in a prison, so GET YOUR ID OUT! And while you're at it, let's see your "loyal shopper" card.
  • As for the Id matter 40 years Old Come on!
    As for the ID thing....I think it should be sided with say Selective service if anything at All...old enought to Kill for your nation your old enough to Buy..this is to me is like Gun Control if the seller see's a problem they can refuse you...Besides again i think this case about buying Goods as I understand can only be done by a Act of Congress...

    Commerce in this case is more for the fact of Money and the federal Standard of , this view is a part of the views of what became the civil war and the fall out of !

    I Understand the need to been Watchfull of things...But this Move is not Constitutional, Not Ever one Buying this Stuff is in the Event seeking to carry out a crime, there for tracking such is using a law to say your guilty for a crime with out being proved to be do ing so, So this would Fall under the Guied lines of a Violation of the 5th Amendment! http://www.revolutionary-war-and-beyond.com/5th-amendment.html

    I also thing think this could be so challenged thru a tort Claim suing using Direct or Indirect Constitutional Contempt them suing a suit and laws as such as US title 42 usc section 1983, I say under the Indiana State Constitution section 12 Section 12. Openess of the courts, Speedy trial
    Section 12. All courts shall be open; and every person, for injury done to him in his person, property, or reputation, shall have remedy by due course of law. Justice shall be administered freely, and without purchase; completely, and without denial; speedily, and without delay. Could file such a case free then so fight the matter of such mised views of laws.

      I guess the ability to sell to minors is more lucrative to the alchoholic beverage lobby than the right to sell on Sundays. Or, at least, it's something that big boxes and mom and pops can agree on!
    • Stupid
      Oh, another stupid law defining the age to buy alcohol. We have one defining the age at 21. That should be enough. Showing an ID to prove you are over 40 is further proof that our state legislature is incompetent. So now the clerk is to determine if you look to be over 40 and he won't have to ask for your ID. Personally, I would like to have a job but any help from the state legislature or the governor to help increase employment opportunities is beyond their abilities. They are only capable of passing laws that deal with their social agenda. (At least this new law is meaningless as a clerk can alway say he thought the person looks to be over 40 and it eliminates people like me who are well over 40 from ever having to show my ID again.)
