Merchant Education and Training
It is your responsibility to understand and comply with federal laws restricting the sale and distribution of tobacco products, including restrictions on the access to, and the advertising and promotion of, cigarettes and smokeless tobacco products.
Webinars are no longer being offered as a source of Tobacco Merchant Education Training. The Division of Alcohol and Tobacco Control offers a ninety minute face to face Merchant Education and Training on federal and state tobacco laws. These face to face trainings will allow retailers to participate in the training and allow attendees to interact with other participants and the presenter. To schedule training in your area, please contact Vanessa Mure, Tobacco Program Manager, at Vanessa.Mure@dps.mo.gov or 573-751-5448.
