Simple math may be to blame for seven northern Door County businesses selling tobacco products to minors during a recent Wisconsin Wins operation. Wisconsin Wins is a state initiative aiming to prevent youth access to tobacco through education, periodic business checks, and outreach. Juvenile investigator Chris Neuville says in many cases identification was being checked, but employees were just off a little bit with their math.
Neuville says he will not fine any of the businesses this time around, but says subsequent violations could cost them $200.50 per offense.
