    Trying to buy alcohol in Montgomery County, Maryland? You should expect to get carded even if you're much older than 21. 

    Anyone who wants to purchase alcohol in the county should expect to get carded under rules set to go into effect in July.

    Starting July 1, employees at all 27 liquor stories run by the county will ask for age identification for every person making a purchase, no matter their age. 

    County officials said this new policy is intended to protect store employees. Previous rules required employees to check identification for anyone who looked under the age of 35.

    More information is expected to be released this month.
