Tobacco Compliance Check Retailer Violation Report

Last updated: October 5, 2022

It is against the law to sell ANY tobacco product, including electronic smoking devices (e-cigarettes, vapes, pod-based devices such as JUUL and their e-liquids, and component parts and accessories) to anyone under the age of 21. To comply with federal and Maryland laws, retailers and clerks must post an age-of-sale sign in the store, use a driver’s license or government-issued ID to verify customer age, and refuse to sell tobacco and e-cigarette products to everyone under 21.

The Department of Health partners with local law enforcement to educate tobacco retailers about the law and to conduct underage tobacco sales compliance checks. Underage shoppers, working with the police, visit retailers and attempt to purchase tobacco products. If the retailer asks for ID and refuses the sale, they pass. If the retailer makes the sale to the underage customer, they fail and receive a Tobacco and ENDS Criminal Citation – Criminal Law 10-107. The following retailer(s) failed a compliance check:
