Advanced ID Detection Technology
We have deployed multiple checkpoints and ID scan stations at all of our locations ensuring a double redundancy layer to avoid Fake ID or Borrowed ID holders from committing an act of fraud and purchasing medicated product.
Continued Staff Training
As a business owner and cannabis licensee, we bring jobs to the community and provide valuable services to our neighbors. The Oregon Liquor Control Commission wants to help us in our efforts to run a profitable business selling cannabis lawfully and responsibly. In addition to in-house OLCC staff-trainings performed by Field Investigators, we hold regular seminars to exchange information and upkeep best practices.
Borrowed IDs are now the most common form of ID fraud. It is estimated that 95% of all ID fraud originates with a borrowed ID. Minors get borrowed IDs from several sources: they use the ID of an older sibling, an older friend, or get an ID of a stranger through their friends and friend networks.
In an effort to keep up with the modern security enhancements of real IDs, manufacturers of faked IDs are using advanced technology to create very "real" looking fakes. The internet has become a prime resource to purchase these IDs. The best way to spot fakes is to do a visual and physical examination of the ID in question, and to be familiar with what a real ID in your community looks like.
Modern IDs are much harder to alter than in the past. For example, given the advancement of ID printing methods and the use of specialized plastic material, altering an IDs photo is extremely difficult as is rarely seen on newer forms of ID. The current trend in ID altering is to change the date of birth, "Under 18 Until," or "Under 21 Until" dates. The most common technique to alter IDs is to use clear fingernail polish or superglue and write or print new dates on top of the polish or glue.
