Community Council Against Substance Abuse (CCASA), a workgroup of the Marion County Children’s Alliance, is pleased to announce the results of our 2017 Quarter 2 Compliance Check Campaign. In an effort to combat the sale of alcohol and other age sensitive products to minors, CCASA partnered with the Marion County Sheriff’s Office to conduct several undercover operations in Marion County, targeting alcohol and tobacco retailers. The purpose of the operation was to determine whether or not the store had appropriate signage indicating the proper identification requirements for certain products and to see if the store’s staff would complete an alcohol or tobacco sale to a someone lacking appropriate ID or someone who was identified as being underage. Of the 100 stores surveyed, 94 successfully complied with state law by asking for ID and declining to sell to a person not meeting requirements. The 6 stores that did not pass the compliance check faced consequences ranging from fines to the arrest of the staff who completed an illegal sale. As gatekeepers to substances that are potentially harmful to youth, the stores who did pass deserve recognition as outstanding local retailers. See the list below of the “Passing” stores and be sure to thank them for their role in keeping our community’s youth safe!
