e-Cigarette & Vapor Central
e-Cigarettes and vapor products are a growing category for many store channels, including vape stores that exclusively sell these products and accessories.
Both the federal government and the states regulate e-cigarettes and vapor products — as an age-restricted product — where retailers must identify and deny underage purchase attempts.
The new national 21 year minimum-age law for tobacco and vapor products requires retailers to prevent e-cigarettes and vapor product sales to underage persons by asking for ID of every customer under 30 years old, confirming a customer's age, and denying sales to those under 21 years old.
