ATTENTION TOBACCO RETAILERS:
If you use the FDA age verification app: FDA Age Calculator, that will allow a clerk to scan ID or manually enter birth day to verify age, you may be liable for underage tabacco purchases due to the recent federal law change.
The FDA age verification app says that an 18 year old is permitted to buy tobacco products which is no longer the case.
Tobacco retailers should use caution if they are using this app.
