In the spring of 2000, the Iowa Alcoholic Beverages Division (Iowa ABD) began oversight of Iowa’s tobacco, alternative nicotine and vapor product laws. Part of this role is to provide educational resources for retailers selling these products with the I-PLEDGE Retailer Training and Enforcement Program.
Enforcement of Iowa’s tobacco laws is done in partnership with state, county, or local law enforcement agencies. Iowa ABD contracts with agencies for compliance checks at all tobacco, alternative nicotine and vapor product retail outlets located within their jurisdictions. Reimbursement is made by the Iowa ABD for each check conducted.
Public education is an effective way to support the enforcement of Iowa’s tobacco, alternative nicotine and vapor product laws. Please contact the Division toll-free at 866.IowaABD or e-mail IAPledge@IowaABD.com for additional information regarding the I-PLEDGE Retailer Training program.
