Department of Behavioral Health Invites Public Comment on Report Detailing Progress Curbing Illegal Tobacco Sales to Youth

Washington, DC –The Department of Behavioral Health is requesting public comment on the Fiscal Year 2015 Annual Synar Report which details its work to reduce youth tobacco access. Last year, the Department conducted 378 random, unannounced inspections of retail outlets to identify violators of the law prohibiting the sale of tobacco products to anyone younger than 18 years of age. In addition, the Report outlines future plans to reduce youth tobacco access, including merchant education and an increased number of compliance checks.
