So you suggesting that Woodchuck not only break one law, according to gerald but break another by using a phony ID. Great suggestion.
I don't see anywhere where I ever suggested that Woodchuck break any laws. Not the first one you are referring to, as pointed out by gerard, and which you're also now confirming is a violation of that actual law (even though for some reason you earlier seemed to criticize gerard for pointing that out) since you're (mistakenly) claiming I suggest he break that law. And since gerard provided a link to the actual law, it's safe to say it actually is a law.

I also haven't suggested any use of a phony ID by anyone. I'm assuming that both Woodchuck and his wife, like me and my wife, have valid ID's (both government and store issued) that are not phony or counterfeit.
The store knows what's up as soon as they enter the store account ID number into their system. There's no fraud being comitted since it's obvious no one is pretending to be somone they're not. If Maria Woodchuck uses Joe Woodchuck's store account ID number to get a discount while picking up his medication no one is going to think that Maria is trying to fraudulently present herself as Joe. When Maria gives the clerk Joe's store account ID she tells the clerk she's picking up medicine for her husband, Joe, as the clerk enters the account number. The clerk sees Joe's name on the account. Confirmation made.
It's an in-store discount using a store issued card and a store account ID. It has nothing to do with the government. The business only uses the same number for their store account ID, much like how someone's account ID for their cable or cellphone bill might be the same as their social security number. The business sets the policy and chooses what information to use for their customers account IDs. If there was a problem with using the same number that the govt. issues I'm sure a businesses legal department wouldn't allow it. The business has no problem extending the discount to spouses. The government isn't involved. The pharmacy makes a sale, you and your spouse get the discount. Win-Win. No one seems to think there's anything wrong with allowing a business to set up it's own discount and membership policies except for you.
What exact law is being broken by picking up medicine for a family member and using their store discount membership account ID (which happens to be the same as the person's national ID #, though it's not being used for tax, immigration, or other official govt. transactions) to take advantage of their discount? I'm not aware of any such law, the pharmacy never brings up any law, but I'm curious to know if there is an actual law prohibiting this. Is there also a law stating that businesses cannot use government issued ID numbers as a customer's account number? If so, there are a lot of businesses (not customers) breaking that law.
I'm not stating for a fact that the laws you're suggesting don't exist, just that nobody but you seems to believe that they do. I'm open to being proven wrong on that, but I'd have to have more than a suggestion of their existance; an actual reference. A link to an official govt. website stating the so-called law you're talking about so I could see it for myself. Until then I'm not going to worry about giving out so-called suggestions that break laws that can't be cited, or false claims that I suggested breaking laws that actually do exist.
