        Amends the Illinois Municipal Code.  Provides that a municipality      
   may provide for the  regulation,  licensing,  and  inspection  of  any      
   retail  business  or establishment selling cigarettes or other tobacco      
   products, may determine the number of licenses, and may determine  the      
   location for sales. Amends the Sale of Tobacco to Minors Act.  Changes      
   the  short  title  to  the  Prevention  of  Tobacco Use by Minors Act.      
   Prohibits minors from possessing or  smoking  tobacco  (now  only  the      
   buying  by  and  the  sale  and  distribution  to minors of tobacco is      
   prohibited).  Provides that the court may  impose  for  possession  or      
   smoking  of  tobacco  products  by a minor up to 25 hours of community      
   service for the first offense, up to 25 hours of community service and      
   a fine not to exceed $25 for the second offense, and up to 50 hours of      
   community service and a fine not  to  exceed  $50  for  the  third  or      
   subsequent  offense. Exempts from violations the possession or smoking      
   of tobacco products by minors who are members of the Armed  Forces  or      
   Reserve  Forces  and  those  who  participate  in  an  experimental or      
   research program that is conducted by  an  accredited  institution  of      
   higher education to study the effects of tobacco products on minors.        
          STATE MANDATES FISCAL NOTE                                           
          HB796 fails to meet the definition of a State mandate.               
          HOME RULE NOTE                                                       
          HB796 does not preempt home rule powers.                             
          FISCAL NOTE (DCCA)                                                   
          If a municipality chooses to implement HB796, there may be a         
          fiscal impact on units of local government.

   supervision  for possessing or smoking tobacco, with their consent, to      
   attend  smoker's  education  programs  if  available.  Provides   that      
   attendance  at  a  smoker's  education  program shall be time-credited      
   against community service for  first  offense  violations  for  minors      
   possessing tobacco products.
