    Objectives

    This study documented illegal sales of cigarettes to minors in low-income African-American and White urban areas in East Baltimore.

    Methods

    Six youths, aged 14 through 16 years, were sent to a random sample of 83 corner stores to attempt to purchase cigarettes.

    The youths provided the investigators with data on merchant, store, and purchase characteristics.

    Results

    The youths successfully purchased cigarettes in 85.5% of the stores ; 58% of the stores displayed five or more cigarette advertisements outside their premises.

    Conclusions

    Cigarette sales to minors and associated advertising remain prevalent in this urban community.
