Senate Bill 288, scheduled for a hearing in the Senate Committee on Health and Welfare tomorrow, could ban all tobacco products in Vermont, including premium cigars and pipe tobacco. S.B. 288 is a tobacco sales ban disguised as a flavor ban, presuming all products to be flavored if they have ever been described by the manufacturer or an employee of the manufacturer as having a distinguishable taste or aroma other than the taste or aroma of tobacco.
Urge your elected officials to amend S.B. 288 to protect premium cigar and pipe tobacco specialty stores from this misguided legislation.
