ALE agents made their monthly compliance checks by using an undercover minor to attempt to buy tobacco. If the store clerk did not check the buyer’s identification, or checked the ID but still sold, the ALE agent would issue a citation. A district court judge can fine the clerk up to $1,000 or order community punishment up to 30 days. If the store clerk has prior convictions, the judge could order jail time. Selling tobacco to an underage person is a Class II misdemeanor.
The monthly unannounced compliance checks are part of the state’s Tobacco Education and Compliance Check, a program which is funded by the N.C. Health and Wellness Trust Fund.
