Colorado HB 22-1064, as introduced, calls for a sweeping ban on all tobacco products that have a so-called ‘characterizing flavors’. The language in this bill could be implemented to reduce or remove many premium cigars due to the notes of flavors people get from premium cigars. Bills like this are being introduced in a variety of states to restrict consumer choice and hamper small business retailers, and ultimately prohibit the sale of legal products to legal-age adults.
As a Colorado retailer you need to send the message below to your legislators and educate them on premium cigars and what vague legislation like Colorado HB 22-1064 would do to your business. Make your voice heard and protect premium cigars in Colorado!
