Besides complying with this law, what else can I do to help protect my young customers from tobacco addiction?

Watch out for “shoulder tapping” in which teens lurk outside a store and try to convince (and pay) older teens, homeless people, or anyone they can find, to go into your store and buy tobacco for them.  In addition to refusing to sell tobacco to teens, you could train your employees to refuse to sell to adults who buy tobacco for youth who are waiting outside.
