We Card Awareness Month gets un­derway in September, and the event is a great time for truckstop and trav­el plaza operators to train or re-train employees on the Food and Drug Ad­ministration’s regulations and state law compliance. 

In many states across the country, re­tailers are being fined for not comply­ing with state laws requiring specific signage in their stores. For tobacco and e-cigarette or vaping product re­tailers, having the state-required sig­nage is a basic requirement.

Every state conducts compliance checks using underage minors to de­termine if retailers properly identify and deny sales to minors. The FDA con­ducts federal government inspections in the same way, performing approxi­mately 150,000 per year.

NATSO encourages all operators to continue in their efforts to success­fully identify and prevent age-restricted product sales to minors.

There are a number of We Card re­sources available. They include:

We Card Awareness Month is a great opportunity for operators to commu­nicate the “We Card” message and demonstrate their role as a respon­sible retailer.
