This measure would allow for the expansion, change in location and establishment of tobacco bars.

The measure exempts tobacco bars from buildings that people can smoke in from current law. The tobacco bar must have first began operating on or after October 1, 2021 and must:

(i) be located in a stand-alone building,

(ii) have a walk-in humidor on the premises,

(iii) not be located within a five-mile radius of any existing tobacco bar, or

(iv) if such tobacco bar is connected to another building, use its own heating, ventilation or air conditioning system to prevent the comingling of air.

Reach out to the Connecticut State Senate today and urge them to support this legislation!
