The Iowa Alcoholic Beverages Division is Asking:

  • Iowa's kids to pledge not to use tobacco, alternative nicotine and vapor products
  • Iowa's retailers to pledge not to sell tobacco, alternative nicotine and vapor products to kids
  • Iowa's law enforcement to pledge to enforce Iowa's tobacco, alternative nicotine and vapor laws

Why should you participate in I-PLEDGE?

The overall goal of I-PLEDGE is an increase of voluntary compliance with the state's tobacco, alternative nicotine and vapor products laws through education and enforcement. The core objective of the program is to prevent illegal sales of tobacco, alternative nicotine and vapor products by educating retailers and increasing awareness of changes in Iowa's tobacco, alternative nicotine and vapor products laws.

What will you learn from I-PLEDGE?

While enforcement of Iowa's tobacco, alternative nicotine and vapor product laws is an important goal of I-PLEDGE, education of both law enforcement and the state's retailers is the primary focus of the program. The content focuses on key identifying elements of the latest format of Iowa driver's licenses, but also includes information on the previous version of licenses and identification and how to spot altered and fake IDs. The program focuses on preventing underage sales and when not to make a sale. Participants will learn techniques for refusing the sale of tobacco, alternative nicotine and vapor products with minimal confrontation and how to legally confiscate an altered or fake ID.

Who should take the I-PLEDGE?

All individuals who sell tobacco, alternative nicotine and vapor products as well as holder of retail licenses should take the training. However, anyone who is interested may take the training free of charge.
