A compliance check of Newtown business which sell tobacco and vape products has been carried out and three failed to ID the underage volunteers. Newtown Police received a grant from the Newtown Prevention Council for the initiative, done with members of the Connecticut Tobacco Prevention and Enforcement Program. Infractions were issued to Newtown Convenience on Church Hill Road, Hawleyville Sunocco on Hawleyville Road and Wheels Citgo on South Main Street. A similar operation was conducted over the summer and Newtown Police say all of those cited over the summer were found to be in compliance during this operation. Department officials note that it's against Connecticut State law to sell or deliver tobacco or E-cigarette products to individuals under 21. According to the CDC nicotine can be harmful to the adolescent brain which continues to develop until about age 25.
