In the New Mexico Senate, S.B. 179 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. New Mexico does not need a patchwork of contradictory local laws that will only breed confusion for small businesses and patrons alike!
If anything, premium cigar shops, lounges and clubs (private or open to the public) that only cater to and allow of age adults should be exempt from any such legislation! Contact your legislators today!
