Synopsis As Introduced
Creates the Flavored Tobacco Ban Act. Provides that a tobacco retailer or his or her agents or employees may not sell, offer for sale, or possess with the intent to sell or offer for sale, a flavored tobacco product, flavored related tobacco product, flavored alternative nicotine product, or flavored solution or substance intended for use with electronic cigarettes. Provides that (1) "tobacco product" includes products containing tetrahydrocannabinol and products containing a mixture of tetrahydrocannabinol and nicotine, and (2) "tobacco retailer" includes dispensing organizations and dispensing organization agents, as those terms are defined in the Cannabis Regulation and Tax Act. Creates a presumption that a tobacco product, related tobacco product, alternative nicotine product, or solution or substance intended for use with electronic cigarettes is a banned product, solution, or substance intended for use with electronic cigarettes if it has or produces a characterizing flavor. Establishes penalties for violations. Provides that all moneys collected as fines and civil penalties for violations of the Act shall be distributed: one-half to the State agency or unit of local government that successfully prosecuted the offender; and one-half to the Department of Revenue to be used for enforcing the Act and the Prevention of Tobacco Use by Persons under 21 Years of Age and Sale and Distribution of Tobacco Products Act. Provides that the Act does not preempt or otherwise prohibit the adoption of a local standard that imposes greater restrictions on the access to specified products, solutions, or substances than the restrictions imposed by the Act. Amends the Tobacco Products Tax Act of 1995. Permits the Department of Revenue to suspend the license of any distributor that violates the Flavored Tobacco Ban Act.
