This webinar will cover the key elements of tobacco retail licensing in California. Presenters will walk through the Public Health Law Center’s Model Tobacco Retail Licensing (TRL) ordinance, focusing on the importance of clear and comprehensive definitions, restrictions on tobacco retailers, limitations on where products can be sold, and robust penalty and enforcement provisions. The best TRLs also limit the sale of flavored tobacco products and restrict minimum pack sizes, prices, and tobacco retailer density. Finally, presenters will discuss the Center’s handy TRL fee calculator, which jurisdictions can use to determine TRL fees and recover costs.
