Flagstaff City Council Voting on a Tobacco 21 Ordinance Tuesday (2/2/19)

The Flagstaff City Council has a Tobacco 21 ordinance up for a final vote at their Tuesday, July 2nd 4:30 PM council meeting.  Here’s a copy of their ordinance, which follows the national best practices model for Tobacco 21.  

The ordinance is a few pages long- but essentially it would limit the sale of tobacco including electronic cigarettes to only people over 21, requires retailers that sell tobacco and e-cigs to get a license (the city will do compliance checks), and includes fines for violations.  I couldn’t tell exactly what the effective date for the ordinance would be (should it pass).  More to come.
