The Office of the Mississippi Attorney General's Alcohol and Tobacco Enforcement Unit works with local and state law enforcement officers to reduce youth access to tobacco and alcohol products.

Enforcement activities include:

  • Citations and arrests for illegal sales
  • Inspecting stores and licenses for compliance
  • Investigating fraudulent activity

Report Illegal Activity

To report illegal activity such as underage sales or the sale of loose cigarettes, please call (601) 359-4159.

Report a potential federal violation, such as underage sales of a tobacco product, to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA).

Compliance Reports

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration conducts inspections of tobacco product retailers to determine a retailer's compliance with federal laws and regulations. Past compliance inspections of tobacco product retailers in your area are available online.


If you experience a problem with a tobacco product, such as an unexpected health or safety issue, report it online through the FDA Safety Reporting Portal.
