Governors in 30 states have issued proclamations in support of We Card Awareness Month.
ARLINGTON, VA—Training cashiers or hanging a “We Card” sign in the window isn’t the only thing retailers need to do to truly prevent tobacco or other age-restricted product sales to minors.
Helping retailers successfully prevent e-vapor sales to minors is also a principal focus for We Card. In addition to state law requirements that require retailers to deny sales of those products to minors, in 2016, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) started its regulation of e-cigarette and vaping products. In 2017, FDA has conducted nearly 100,000 store inspections using minors to check if retailers are asking for ID and denying minors’ attempts to purchase tobacco and e-vapor products.
