There is a duplicate ghosted image at the bottom right of the card.17 You are considered a minor (someone who is not an adult) if you are under 18 years old. Until the FDA issues guidance or regulations on what constitutes an FDA “approved training program,” the FDA indicates It is illegal to for a minor to purchase or possess Restricted Products; however, it is not a violation for a person under the age of 18 to purchase, accept or possess Restricted Products pursuant to a plan of action to investigate, patrol or otherwise conduct a 'sting operation' or enforcement action if the 'sting operation' or enforcement action is approved by the Department of State Police, a county sheriff, a municipal police department, the Department of Public Health or a local health department.Any person under the age of 18 who purchases Restricted Products, will be found guilty of a petty offense and shall be fined 0 for the first offense, 0 for the second offense within a twelve-month period, and 0 for the third and subsequent offenses during a twelve-month period.This is called the “age of consent.” These laws are meant to protect minors from being manipulated or forced into sex with older people. Get familiar with these laws, so you and your partner know what is or isn’t legal in your state.

Retailers who violate the regulations may also be in violation of state law and subject to state penalties or other related orders. Federal law provides that the FDA shall adopt regulations that may provide any retailer that implements the “approved training program,” a reduced civil money penalty if that retailer is found in violation.
The FDA does not require training, but it recommends retailers train and educate their employees.
