WHAT ARE COMPLIANCE CHECKS?

Compliance checks use underage decoys to attempt to illegally purchase alcohol or tobacco from retail merchants. As the local licensing agency, cities and counties are responsible for ensuring that retailers comply with state and local control laws. In Minnesota, you must be 21 years of age to purchase both alcohol and tobacco or vaping related products.

Wright County has over 170 establishments licensed to sell either alcohol, tobacco or vaping related products.
