photo id for alcohol and tobacco purchases

i have a question and i hope somebody can help me, my manager and i do not know what is legal or what to do, we have a call into the state but getting through to the attorney general or the governors office is not happening very fast.... i work at a convenience store, right down the road from an amish settlement here in my town and at night when i work the young men come in the store to purchase beer, cigarettes and the like, mostly french fries with mayo if you are interested, new york state and the store i work for has a law that no purchases of tobacco or alcohol can be made by anyone that looks under the age of thirty without a photo id, i have had to refuse sales, i get accused of all kinds of things by the boys, i have nothing against any of them, i admire their convictions and life style if the truth be known, but, as i said my manager and i do not know what to do, we could lose our jobs if someone, the wrong someone saw any of us sell them these items without a proper id, which they obviously do not have due to religious convictions, any advice, any info on where we could find out for sure, personal experience, anything would help, we are making some people very angry, HELP, thanks and i love your column, the cookbooks and all, i have been a fan since the first book by elizabeth came out years ago, cheryl ames
