California Looks to Ban C-Stores From Selling Tobacco

California State Seal

The state Senate passed a bill restricting the sale of tobacco products to 18-and-over cigar shops.

Legislators have passed a bill (S.B. 1400) by California State Senator Bob Wieckowski that changes the definition of a retail location that’s able to obtain a license to sell tobacco to businesses that generate 60 percent or more of gross revenue annually from tobacco-related products. In effect, the legislation would make c-stores and grocery stores ineligible to sell tobacco products.
