Naperville Police Announce Tobacco/Alternative Nicotine Product Compliance Check Results
illi News/10112253

The Naperville Police Department recently completed a round of tobacco/alternative nicotine product compliance checks in early March. The compliance checks were performed at 71 Naperville businesses to determine if local tobacco/alternative nicotine product retailers are complying with the minimum-age tobacco laws that prohibit the sale of tobacco/alternative nicotine products to persons under the age of 21.

The following three (3) establishments failed to successfully pass the compliance check, resulting in City Ordinance citations for selling tobacco/alternative nicotine product to a person under the age of 21 years old:
  • CBD Vape Smoke – 4003 Plainfield/Naperville Rd.
  • Speedway – 631 N. Rt. 59
  • Murphy Express – 2804 Hassert Blvd.

With the help from a grant awarded by the Illinois Department of Human Services Tobacco Enforcement Program, the Naperville Police Department educates local tobacco/alternative nicotine product retailers on minimum-age tobacco/nicotine product laws and the importance of verifying the age of customers before selling age-restrictive products such as tobacco/alternative nicotine products.  Tobacco/alternative nicotine product retailers are given a retailer education packet and notified that the compliance checks are going to occur in the near future.
