07 Feb Arizona: Urge House Commerce Committee to Vote No on HB 2335
The Arizona House of Representatives Commerce Committee will hear House Bill 2335 in the near future. H.B. 2335 establishes that the sale of premium cigars, pipe tobacco, and accessories to adults between the ages of 18 to 20 years old is a criminal offense.
H.B. 2335 also removes the word “knowingly” from statute in relation to a sale. Currently, your employee would have to “knowingly” sell to a minor in order to face legal repercussions. Under H.B. 2335, if an employee is presented with fraudulent identification, the employee is liable.
Please stand up for your retail tobacco business and the rights of law-abiding adults by expressing your opposition to H.B. 2335. Click on the button below to contact the members of the House Commerce Committee TODAY!
