Juul is offering retailers $100 million in incentives to "install a new electronic age-verification system" that the vaping giant hopes will restrict illegal sales to minors, reports the Wall Street Journal.

Why it matters: This is Juul's latest attempt to fight the allegations that the company has helped fuel the teen vaping epidemic.

  • The system blocks the sale of any Juul product until the retailer scans an official government ID.
  • It also "limits each purchase to a maximum of one vaporizer and four refill packs."

The big picture: Some retailers have already taken matters into their own hands. Rite Aid and Walgreens have raised the age to buy tobacco in their stores to 21.

What's next: Juul says 40,000 stores, including some major convenience store chains, have already agreed to install the system, per the WSJ.

  • Juul plans to stop selling to retailers who don't use it by May 2021.

The Senate Leadership Fund, a super PAC associated with Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, raised more than twice as much this September as it did two years ago, according to a FEC filing that will go live Tuesday night.

By the numbers: The SLF raised $92 million in September, spent $105 million, and ended the month with $113 million cash on hand, as Republicans work to maintain their majority on Nov. 3.
