We Card's "21" Law Info & Resources
Federal Law - 21 Year Minimum-Age
A federal law establishes 21 years old as the minimum-age for tobacco and vapor products. It became effective on December 20, 2019. This is a national law in effect in all states and U.S. territories.
Use these resources to prepare your store and employees to comply with the federal law's 21 year minimum-age requirement.
We Card's Training Booster Course - FREE - 10-minutes only
The 10-minute course is meant for all employees and retailers who have been trained already, and it's designed to raise awareness of the 21 year minimum-age law -- and importantly -- how to handle previous legal-aged customers who aren't aware of the new law. The course alerts employees to Ask-for-ID, and includes optional age-calculation practice, and a technique for denying underage sales with positive customer service.
