Violations by Minors

Silhouette of Teens

It is a criminal violation for a minor to purchase or attempt to purchase tobacco products. Minors who violate either of these provisions commit a class two petty offense and are subject to a one hundred dollar fine. If your store is constantly being subjected to attempted tobacco purchases by minors please contact the Liquor Enforcement Division's Tobacco Enforcement Unit at 303-205-2300. The Division, upon request, will provide investigators who will spend time in your store to detect underage purchase attempts. Minors found attempting to purchase will be issued a criminal citation.
