State laws are far from one-size-fits-all; instead, they vary significantly. If you own or operate stores in more than one state or even within a state, and sell age-restricted products, such as tobacco and vaping products, it’s your responsibility to keep up with these law variations. With We Card, you don’t have to go at it alone in understanding the state laws.
As a national provider of educational and training services for retailers of age-restricted products, We Card works to stay on top of the state laws, the requirements and the differences in fines and penalties for violations of illegal sales to underage customers. The same is true for the federal law, the Tobacco Control Act, as well as the FDA’s requirements of retailers. For county or local law requirements, We Card encourages you to connect with your local government since they may have requirements that can be different or in addition to your state requirements.
Learn more about tobacco and vaping laws in your state, including fines, penalties and in-store signage requirements, by periodically reviewing our state law summaries in We Card’s Resource Center. For general We Card knowledge, visit wecard.org.
