City Council passed Ordinance 8533 providing for the licensing of retailers who sell non-cigarette tobacco products. Non-cigarette tobacco product includes:
Any product, other than a cigarette, that contains tobacco or nicotine or is made or derived from tobacco that is intended or expected to be ingested, smoked, inhaled, placed in oral or nasal cavities, or applied to the skin of an individual
Any electronic device that can be used to deliver nicotine or tobacco to the person using the device, including but not limited to an electronic cigarette, cigar, cigarillo or pipe
The term “non-cigarette tobacco product” does not include any product specifically approved by the United States Food and Drug Administration for use in reducing, treating or eliminating nicotine or tobacco dependence, or for other medical purposes, when such product(s) is being marketed and sold solely for such an approved purpose.
The annual fee for original issuance and renewal of a Non-Cigarette Tobacco Product Retailer license shall be $100.
