Porn Store Story: Our sign on the door read "STOP: If you look under the age of 99 prepare to show your I.D."
It more has to do with some old vagrancy laws that ND has. I mean if you look, and are 72.. I know you can buy your porn, but I needed to always make sure that a person just had ID, no scanning it or even reading the name... just show me a frigging State/Military ID with your photo on it and I was happy.
Many times though I got the "I'm old enough to be your grandfather!" remarcks, which I just then would ask them to prove it with an ID , becaue I was a jackass like that.
As for having mine scanned, there are few places that do that in Fargo, and as Tasera mentioned, its quicker to just scan the ID and then see the info, since every single damned state has their own messed ID's. I can attest that I hate finding someones birthdate on an out of state ID that I have no clue how to read.
