Tobacco compliance checks were performed on March 14th. 

A total of 17 businesses were checked and 14 passed, resulting in an 82% compliance rate.

Several times each year, FCPH partners with local law enforcement agencies to carry out tobacco compliance checks in Fargo, West Fargo, and Cass County.
