INTRODUCED

HB 1433 -- Possession of Tobacco by Minors

Co-Sponsors:  Hollingsworth, Gaw, Fitzwater, Gambaro

This bill makes it a class C misdemeanor for a person under the
age of 18 to be in possession of tobacco products.  The bill
requires vendors of tobacco products to display signs in their
places of business that state it is a violation of state law for
minors to be in possession of tobacco products.  Currently,
vendors are required to display a sign stating only that it is a
violation to sell tobacco products to minors.

The bill also deletes an exception to the prohibition on
distributing tobacco products to persons under 18.  Currently,
this provision is not violated if family members are responsible
for the distribution, and it takes place on private property.
