New York Legislation may help prevent sale of Alcohol and Tobacco to minors
A legislation has passed through the New York Senate and Assemly encouraging the use of a high tech age verification scanner called IDentiScan(TM) to verify a customer's age.
The legislation is designed to encourage merchants to prevent the sale of alcohol and tobacco to minors by using IDentiScan(TM). New York would be the first state in the nation to enact such a law. Five other states are also considering legislation.
The bill is an extension of Governor Pataki's "Zero Tolerance Program'' and is designed to reduce underage alcohol and tobacco purchases. By using the advanced tool IDentiScan(TM), operators will protect their customers and their business from fines, penalties and loss of license. IDentiScan(TM) has been a leading advocate of the prevention of underage purchasing of age sensitive products at the point of sale in grocery, drug and convenience stores as well as restaurants, bars and nightclubs.
