ABOUT COUNTER STRIKE
When teens have easier access to tobacco, more of them will get addicted. Counter Strike is about teenagers making a difference in their community by working with local law enforcement to identify stores that sell tobacco to minors.
Be the Change.
In Arizona, it’s illegal for youth under 18 to buy tobacco. Even still, every tobacco product that minors purchase illegally still makes money for tobacco companies.
Counter Strike is your chance to participate and be the difference. Along with a special investigator, teens enter a store and try to buy tobacco. If the clerk sells it to them, they may be given a citation and fined $300. The business may also be fined up to $1000. If the clerk refuses to sell, they are notified of the inspection and thanked for keeping tobacco away from teens.
Counter Strike is a partnership of STAND and the Arizona Attorney General’s Office.
