Tabaco Passport?

From March of this year, the Tobacco Institute of Japan will start this campaign in which non underage (above 20) smokers will receive a "TASPO" (Tacabo Passport) card which will allow them to buy cigaretes on vending machines.
Whoever's been to Tokyo knows there is more than one vending machine in each block of the city.

They will deliver these TASPO electronic cards all over Japan and from July of this year, every single vending machine will have this system, which will prevent underage smokers from purchasing cigarettes.

This is what Japanese use technology for.

(I wish they also prohibited to smoke indoors...)
