Why did the Town Council enact this TRL ordinance?

This new law is to reduce youth access to tobacco, and to ensure compliance with other tobacco related-laws. 90% of tobacco retailers are ethical and have done a good job of checking identifications and not selling tobacco to minors under the age of 18.  However, the County Sheriff’s compliance checks have found that some merchants continue to sell tobacco to youth. Only losing their license would stop them from making profits by addicting youth in our communities.
