More than a thousand clerks have been busted for the sale of tobacco products to minors. Alcohol law enforcement agents busted 1080 store clerks who tried to sell tobacco related products to minors in 2008. That is about 16 percent of the clerks the agency checked.

Violators can be fined up to $1,000 and if a clerk has a record he or she could face jail time.
