Recent changes to State law (P.L. 2019 c. 396) now prohibit the use of any coupons, price reduction promotions, or price rebates for cigarettes, tobacco products, and vapor products as of March 1, 2020.
When selling cigarettes, tobacco products, or vapor products to a retail consumer, no person shall offer, provide, or accept:
Retailers that violate this law will be subject to:
"Tobacco product" means cigarettes made of tobacco or of any other matter or substance which can be smoked, or any cigarette paper or tobacco in any form - including smokeless tobacco. "Vapor product" means any non-combustible product containing nicotine that employs a heating element, power source, electronic circuit, or other electronic, chemical, or mechanical means, regardless of shape or size, to produce vapor from nicotine in a solution or any form.
If you need assistance or clarification with any part of this new law, please email us at Tobacco.firstname.lastname@example.org.
