No minor under eigh­teen (18) years of age shall buy any cig­ar, cig­a­rette, smoke­less tobac­co or tobac­co in any of its forms.  No per­son shall sell, buy for, dis­trib­ute sam­ples of or fur­nish any cig­ar, cig­a­rette, smoke­less tobac­co or tobac­co in any of its forms, to any minor under eigh­teen (18) years of age.

For the pur­pose of this Sec­tion, “smoke­less tobac­co” is defined in Sec­tion 26–1‑2(A).

(A) Tobac­co prod­ucts list­ed above may be sold through a vend­ing machine only in the fol­low­ing locations:

  1. Fac­to­ries, busi­ness­es, office, pri­vate clubs, and oth­er places not open to the gen­er­al public.
  2. Places to which minors under eigh­teen (18) years of age are not per­mit­ted access.
  3. Places where alco­holic bev­er­ages are sold and con­sumed on the premises.
  4. Places where the vend­ing machine is under the direct super­vi­sion of the own­er of the estab­lish­ment or an employ­ee over eigh­teen (18) years of age.  The sale of tobac­co prod­ucts from a vend­ing machine under direct super­vi­sion of the own­er or an employ­ee of the estab­lish­ment is con­sid­ered a sale of tobac­co prod­ucts by that per­son.  As used in this Sec­tion, “direct super­vi­sion” means that the own­er or employ­ee has an unim­ped­ed line of sight to the vend­ing machine.
  5. Places where the vend­ing machine can only be oper­at­ed by the own­er or an employ­ee over age eigh­teen (18) either direct­ly or through a remote con­trol device if the device is inac­ces­si­ble to all customers.
