I know there have been ID posts before, but I want to post this. I have backstory, sorry. In Virginia, we're just getting new licenses, but like most people, I still have the old style. This is the "adult" version, and this is the underage version. Virginia used to issue licenses every five years. Mine expired when I turned 20, so I got a new one and it was still the underage version- vertical design, red line around the photo, and it said "Under 18 until 11-18-2002, Under 21 until 11-18-2005" Since mine doesn't expire until November of this year, I'm 24 and I still have a license that says Under 21 until 11-18-2005. I went to a concert at a 21 & over venue last night and while they sold me a ticket, they warned me that I wouldn't be able to drink because I had a vertical license. I pointed out that it said I was under 21 until 2005, which was four years ago, and was told that it was the policy. Apparently this is common in Maryland, especially because it's an out-of-state license. I don't know how Maryland does their licenses, but this strikes me as an incredibly stupid policy for a popular place in Annapolis, which I'm sure sees Virginia licenses every damn day. I emailed the general manager, not making a formal complaint, but asking if that was really the policy, because I find it odd, considering how many people my age are in a similar situation.
