  • ATTN RETAILERS: San Antonio City Council Needs to Hear from You!

    SAN ANTONIO CITY COUNCIL WANTS TO RESTRICT THE SALE OF TOBACCO PRODUCTS IN YOUR COMMUNITY!
     
    Here is what TFFA is saying about increasing the legal age of the sale of tobacco from 18 to 21:
    • Raising the legal age to purchase tobacco products would be inconsistent with the way the state and federal government define adulthood for other purposes, including voting, serving in the armed forces and paying taxes.
    • Increasing the legal age of purchase on tobacco products will drive current, adult customers to other localities or states to acquire tobacco products. And while there, they will buy gas, food and many of the other items on which your store depends.
    • Increasing the City’s legal age of purchase is unnecessary and is not the best approach to reducing underage use of tobacco products.
