The Prevention Resource Center in region 11, along with the rest of the PRC’s in the State, is responsible for conducting tobacco prevention strategies to ensure retail stores’ compliance with state and federal regulations to limit minors’ access to tobacco products. Our efforts include retail merchant education and retail merchant voluntary compliance checks within the PRC region. This is in an effort to ensure that retail stores are in compliance with state and federal regulations and are not making tobacco products available to minors.
