In 1993, federal regulations were introduced requiring all states to reduce the sale of tobacco products to minors by enacting and enforcing minimum-age tobacco laws...

The 'Illinois Liquor Control Commission' was subsequently designated as the state agency responsible for complying with these regulations.

The Commission immediately created the “Kids Can’t Buy ‘Em Here” (KCBEH) Campaign which facilitates the implementation and expansion of community-based, retail education and enforcement programs. The Commission’s role, and the primary function of the “KCBEH” Campaign are:

  • Provide technical assistance to communities wishing to improve retailer compliance through educational programs and enforcement activities.
  • Initiate activities to promote awareness and compliance to minimum-age tobacco laws with the general public, tobacco retailers and municipal officials.
