Me and a friend are having a slight difference of opinion on the legality of novelty IDs. We both agree it's illegal to use a fake ID that looks identical to one that is government issued. I said to get around this you make a novelty ID. As zengrifter mentioned, change the wording around a little bit and add some remark on the back that makes it clearly novelty. My friend still thinks this is illegal because you are trying to get it to pass as a government issued ID still. Even though it is changed slightly, you are still intending it to look like a government issued ID. Anyone familiar with the law here? Let's say I were to use a novelty ID that was slightly altered, and was caught, what would happen?
