Tobacco Retail License - Topic Closed

In California it is illegal for anyone under the age of 21 to purchase or use tobacco products, yet 43% of Fremont’s high schoolers feel it’s fairly easy or very easy to get these products and 1 in 10 Fremont high schoolers have used an e-cigarette device. The Fremont City Council will be voting on whether to establish a Tobacco Retail License Program for all tobacco retailers in the City of Fremont.
