ProSmoke Electronic Cigarettes Joins National "We Card" Training Program To Prevent Youth Access To E-Cigarettes

CHICAGO, June 20, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --  ProSmoke Electronic Cigarettes, the industry leading tobacco alternative, is pleased to announce they have joined the "We Card" Training Program, a nationally recognized sales training and education program designed to help prevent underage access to tobacco products and other age-restricted products. With electronic cigarettes in the national spotlight in recent weeks, ProSmoke has already set an example for other companies, as well as Big Tobacco, to operate in this growing marketplace.

Since 1995, "We Card" has provided retailers, community groups, trade associations, and government agencies with in-store materials and award-winning training to prevent underage sale of tobacco products. ProSmoke's new training partnership with WeCard ensures their business and retail partners have the resources needed to prevent underage sales to minors of all their electronic cigarette products and accessories.  According to the program's website, "We Card" training and educational tools focus on helping retailers teach managers and clerks about asking for ID, how to spot fake IDs, and key tips on preventing the underage sale of tobacco and other age-restricted products.

Although our products are intended to be a cigarette alternative and do not contain tobacco, some do contain nicotine. We proudly have joined the 'We Card' training programs to utilize their certification process and ensure our electronic cigarette products aren't getting into the wrong hands," said a ProSmoke representative. "Retailers are on the frontlines in the effort to reduce access to tobacco products, which is why the 'We Card' Program's merchant education is so important."

According to the "We Card" Web Center, the program "has become one of the most widely accepted retail training and education programs to help retailers prevent underage tobacco sales." Although the FDA does not currently regulate e-cigarettes for sale, as of now 11 states consider e-cigarettes to be an age-restricted product. This includes California, Idaho, Minnesota, New York, Tennessee, Vermont, and New Hampshire. Additionally, the FDA has indicated the intent to regulate electronic cigarettes in the future.

"We already prohibit online electronic cigarette sales to customers under the age of 18 using age verification, and we fully support national initiatives and legislation regulating the sale of e-cigarettes to minors," said the ProSmoke representative. "We look forward to working with the 'We Card' Training Program on a more extensive process to educate our employees and to prevent underage access to our e-cigarette products."
