proof of legal age for purchase of such  products.  Such  identification

ment which violates the provisions of this section shall be subject to a

to, pharmacies, grocery stores, and other retail stores.

  3. RETAIL ESTABLISHMENTS SHALL REQUIRE PROOF OF LEGAL AGE FOR PURCHASE
OF SUCH PRODUCTS. SUCH IDENTIFICATION NEED NOT BE REQUIRED OF ANY  INDI-
VIDUAL  WHO  REASONABLY APPEARS TO BE AT LEAST TWENTY-FIVE YEARS OF AGE,
