Warning: Do Not Try to Use them to Buy Alcohol in Ithaca
I am old enough to remember a time when you could get alcohol at the tender age of 18. Funny how that proved not enough to stop me from having someone else's id as a kid. Yes, I hope the statute of limitations has passed on that offense but seriously when you are not young enough to go into certain places it's all you think about.
1984 was a BIG Year
Not too long ago, 30 years to be exact all the states were coerced into changing the minimum drinking age to 21 to receive government funding. See National Minimum Drinking Age Act of 1984. So as of 1984 you can vote, you can fight, you can contract, and you can marry BUT you don't have enough mental function or a right to legally drink. Where the logic is in all of that is something else.
