Home delivery companies aren’t checking IDs when dropping off booze
Over the past year, the Oregon Health Authority and the Oregon Liquor and Cannabis Commission have been running a sting operation with a volunteer team of 20-somethings. They’ve been ordering booze for home delivery on their phones and tallying whether the delivery drivers check their identification. More than a third of deliveries were “noncompliant,” and the rate was even higher for younger buyers. Nearly half of deliveries to volunteers aged 21 to 23 didn’t pass muster. Most of the time, the delivery driver failed to compare the picture on the photo ID with the face of the buyer.
