Halting Tobacco Sales to Minors

No Tobacco Sales to Minors

Tennessee’s Youth Access to Tobacco Program administers the Prevention of Youth Access to Tobacco and Vapor Products Act for the purpose of reducing access by minors to tobacco products through various prohibitions and restrictions on the sale, distribution and receipt of such products. This includes conducting random, unannounced inspections of locations where tobacco products are sold or distributed.

 Anyone appearing to be under 27 years of age must present a valid photo ID and be at least 18 years of age to purchase tobacco products including e-cigarettes and vapor products.
