This study compared the impact of education and enforcement interventions on retailers'sale of tobacco to minors in Central Harlem, New York.
In a randomized trial with repeated measures, 152 stores were randomly divided into control, education, and enforcement groups.
Overall tobacco sales to 12-and 13-year-old minors at baseline (98%) were among the highest in the nation.
At 6-month and 1-year follow-ups, decreases in rates of tobacco sales to minors were modest among education stores and substantial among enforcement stores.
Effective reduction of tobacco sales to minors may require ongoing enforcement measures, including fines for retailers who violate state and local laws.
