Abstract:To compare traditional in-store age verification with a newly developed remote age verification system, 100 cigarette purchase attempts were made by 15-year-old “mystery shoppers.” The remote system led to a strong increase in compliance (96% vs. 12%), reflecting more identification requests and more sale refusals when adolescents showed their identification cards.
