Williamson, NY asked in Consumer Law and Education Law for New York

Q: In New York, can youth purchase alcohol for law enforcement purposes?

If you were to have an experiment where you'd ask children (with the consent of their guardians and their signature) to go to specific stores that sell alcohol and try and see which stores ask for an ID and which don't then list them all down, would that be legal, or illegal. No fake IDs would be used, and if they asked for an ID, the children would let the store clark know it was an experiement. Otherwise, the alcohol would be bought to their parents.

A: Your question remains open for two weeks. Some questions remain unanswered on this forum, but one option could be to repost under Criminal Law. That might increase chances for a response. Good luck
