underage tobacco prevention

The Issue:

Tobacco products should only be available to adults and sold by licensed and regulated tobacco retailers.

Underage Tobacco Prevention

Tobacco Issues supports fully restricting the sale of all tobacco products to kids, as well as strict enforcement of these restrictions by state and municipal authorities.

Retailer Licensing

Tobacco Issues believes that everyone engaged in the manufacturing, distribution or sale of tobacco products should have a government issued permit, license or registration. In addition, tobacco products should only be sold by licensed manufacturers, distributors and retailers. Licensing would improve the ability of government authorities to identify parties legally authorized to distribute tobacco products. It would also help protect legitimate trade members who face unfair competition by providing government authorities the ability to revoke licenses of trade members who do not comply with required laws or who trade in contraband tobacco products. Limiting the sale of tobacco products to licensed retailers helps to ensure that tobacco products are only available to adults.
