Tobacco Retailers Will be Charged for Selling Tobacco To Underage Shoppers

Tobacco control officials in Niagara declare that they won’t permit retailers sell tobacco products to young people.
A recent report demonstrated that officers are distributing fewer warnings to retailers but charging with those who interfere in provincial law banning the sale of cigarettes to young people aged 19 and under.

The number of tobacco control officials dropped from the six full-time people to four full-time people because of the funding reductions. All tobacco enforcement programs are funded by the province.

In the circumstances concerned, officials were more severe in laying charges against those stores which sold tobacco products and also against youngsters who smoked on school properties.

Those tobacco control officials, who lead inspections at stores, resort to underage shoppers help in order to control shops, whether they obey the age limit for buying tobacco. Usually, stores caught infringing the law received a warning on the offence. But because of increased cases of vendor’s noncompliance, the public health department announced all tobacco retailers that any sales to young people would result in charges. It was decided that those stores which would sell tobacco to minors should be prohibited from selling cigarettes for at least six months.

According to the report the number of warnings issued to tobacco retailers dropped from 72 in 2008 to 30 last year, but the number of compulsory charges rose from 51 in 2008 to 92 last year. That is despite the fact that there were fewer test shops lat year, down to 875 from 1,078 two years earlier, mainly due to the fact that the number of retailers selling tobacco products in Niagara decreased from 534 in 2008 to 480 last year.

Tobacco officials also issued 63 charges last year for young people smoking at schools, up from 12 in 2008. Penalty for convictions are about $250 for caught smoking in a public place, or about $300 for the owner of a business who allows someone smoke or the one who sell cigarettes to underage shoppers. Clerks who sell tobacco products to young people can also be charged.

Officials continue to face smoking rules infringed at workplaces, such as people smoking in cafes, bars in workplaces office premises and in workplace vehicles. For instance the Region issued 44 charges at workplaces and public places last year.

It is very important to control and maintain enforcement efforts in Niagara, which has a higher smoking rate than province, both for adults and teenagers. In a report released last April, regional officials declare that smoking rate among young people in Niagara has ceased falling, underlying the need to keep young people away from all kinds of tobacco products.
