State Agencies Offer Training on Tobacco Law Changes

Jul 10, 2012

Some changes in tobacco laws governing underage sales are prompting some new training sessions in the Commonwealth. Some local health departments and regional prevention centers are offering the training free of charge.

The Cabinet for Health and Family Services says compliance reports indicate high compliance rates by tobacco vendors in the bluegrass state. However, Irene Centers of the Department for Public Health's Health Promotion Branch says some new federal regulations require extra effort to educate vendors.

According to the Associated Press, the Public Health Department, Alcoholic Beverage Control, and the Division for Behavioral Health, Developmental and Intellectual Disabilities launched the training program.
