Cannabis Retail Depends on Age Verification
According to 2018 research undertaken by High Times magazine, there are now well over 1,000 recreational or “adult-use” marijuana retail locations across the nine states where adults age 21+ are legally allowed to purchase or possess cannabis (as of August, 2018). Unlike medical marijuana dispensaries, these “adult-use” cannabis shops can not rely on state registries to protect them from non-approved customers buying their product illegally due to age restrictions.
Initially, the only option for businesses selling age restricted items was to visually inspect a customer’s driver license or other form of ID to verify the person was of age, the ID was indeed theirs and was not a fake. Today, relying on an electronic ID scanner provides immediate protection from the most common cause of admitting, serving, or selling to underage customers – employees misreading the ID. And of course, minors know this, so just seeing that an ID scanner is being used is often enough of a deterrent.
Yet fake IDs have become of increasing high quality. Today, fake driver licenses can be bought through the Internet for as little as $100 from expert counterfeiters in China and elsewhere. Some studies show that up to 30% of college students have or have used a fake ID. And many of these high quality fakes are visually indistinguishable from a real card to an untrained eye and even a trained eye can be fooled.

State of the Art ID validation with advanced ID imaging evaluation with over 50 Forensic checks made in seconds.
Forensic ID scanners look deeper into driver licenses, state ID cards and other US and international identification documents.
The REAL ID Act of 2005 mandated by Homeland Security includes numerous enhanced security features for US driver licenses and state ID cards making them harder to exactly replicate or modify. While a fake ID may appear authentic to the naked eye, high resolution forensic scanners will detect that it is a fake because they detect the presence of these security features.
