Indiana HB 1379, as introduced, will have 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 popping up in a variety of states to restrict consumers choice and hamper small business retailers to ultimately prohibit the sale of legal products to legal adults.
As an Indiana retailer you need to send the message below to your legislators and educate them on premium cigars and what vague legislation like HB 1379 would do to your business. Make your voice heard and protect premium cigars in Indiana!
