The Tobacco Free Santa Rosa Coalition is hoping to put regulations on tobacco retailers to reduce youth exposure to tobacco and nicotine products.
On Thursday, March 19, the coalition will meet with the city of Milton’s Committee of the Whole to discuss implementing a Tobacco Retail License in the city.
A Tobacco Retail License is a policy tool to help municipalities have more control over how tobacco products are sold, said Kristie Beckstrom, of Tobacco Free Santa Rosa County.
“It puts rules into writing,” she added. “And the rules depend on the policy makers.”
