Post subject: Ohio liquor law & sign
Post Posted: Tue Jan 13, 2015 9:43 am
This is humorous in a sort of sick way.
I was chatting online with a guy in Sweden and showed him this:
http://www.com.ohio.gov/documents/LIQR_under21.pdf
Which, in my mind, doesn't read correctly.
Then I looked up the relevant code in the ORC.
http://codes.ohio.gov/orc/4301.631 and
http://codes.ohio.gov/orc/4301.01

Whoever wrote and got this passed: http://codes.ohio.gov/orc/4301.637 is/was an idiot or can not read and comprehend the English language.

I have written about this over the years. The other sign for 18 year olds is even better.
http://www.com.ohio.gov/documents/LIQR_under18.pdf
It basically says if you don't drink heavily laced alcoholic beverages you are in big trouble.

Actually R.C. 4301.637 requires one card to be printed containing both statements, 21 and 18 warnings.
Quote:
"WARNING TO PERSONS UNDER AGE

If you are under the age of 21

Under the statutes of the state of Ohio, if you order, pay for, share the cost of, or attempt to purchase, or possess or consume beer or intoxicating liquor in any public place, or furnish false information as to name, age, or other identification, you are subject to a fine of up to one thousand dollars, or imprisonment up to six months, or both.

If you are under the age of 18

Under the statutes of the state of Ohio, if you order, pay for, share the cost of, or attempt to purchase, or possess or consume, any type of beer or wine that contains either no alcohol or less than one-half of one per cent of alcohol by volume in any public place, or furnish false information as to name, age, or other identification, you are subject to a fine of up to two hundred fifty dollars or to imprisonment up to thirty days, or both."

If http://codes.ohio.gov/orc/4301.637 is the current LAW (enacted in 1997), why does http://www.com.ohio.gov/documents/LIQR_under21.pdf have Kasich's name on it?

wait, wut?
So it's illegal to sale, give, or for the minor to possess non-alcoholic beer?

That is so stupid.

"any type of beer or wine that contains either no alcohol or less than one-half of one per cent of alcohol by volume in any public place"

I guess this includes ROOTbeer.. which for those of you who are'nt familiar originally DID contain alchol, and some still do, but these days it's usually in it's non alcoholic soda pop form.

So I guess no root beer for minors in public.

Sad to say (although in small doses, such bureaucratic stupidity can be hilarious) Ohio is by far not the only state with weird, nonsensical, totally out of touch with time/reality liquor laws on the books.

Some ignorant person may become alarmed, and we can't have that.''

You know they just regurgitate the signs every time a newcomer gets one of those big shot (no pun intended) state positions. Don't you remember me pointing this out when ODOT was dragging their feet so badly with regards to removing the 'No Guns allowed' signs after the law changed to let us carry in roadside rest areas and such? Sometime during that period (a year or more) a new ODOT director was appointed, and within a WEEK new plaques with his name on them replaced the old ones all across Ohio at those same rest areas, as well as all ODOT storage, office, and other facilities.

Political priorities are often drive by politicians' overly large egos. Same reason the Legislature often spends so much time at the beginning of a new term passing resolutions that officially rename highway overpasses and such for political cronies who paid for the honor with patronage $$$$ or perhaps as a memoriam to their deaths.

You wanna see a state with weird liquor laws, try PA. It may have changed in the years since I lived there, but if you wanted a six-pack of beer, you could only buy it in a bar. But if you wanted more than three six-packs, you had to make multiple trips into and out of the bar to get to that magic fourth six-pack. If you wanted to buy beer by the case, you could only buy it from a beer distributor. But they couldn't sell you a six-pack, only a case.

Still the same in PA. Yes, extremely weird. But then, so is their "language" lol. Have many friends in PA and they would all agree.
