In the Rhode Island Senate, S.B. 349 has been introduced, a bill that would allow local governments to establish stricter tobacco control ordinances and regulations.
Such measures allowed under this bill include regulations on product displays, sales, distribution, and even new local smoking restrictions! These are just a few of the steps localities could take against the sale of legal tobacco products. Rhode Island does not need a patchwork of contradictory local laws that will only breed confusion for small businesses and patrons alike!
