This bill would include in the definition of tobacco products for the purposes of those provisions relating to licenses for retailers the STAKE Act?s new definition of tobacco products. This bill would require a retailer that seeks to sell a tobacco product that is not subject to imposition of a tax under the Cigarette and Tobacco Products Tax Law to pay a one-time license fee to engage in the sale of that product, as specified. The bill would except the STAKE Act’s new definition of tobacco products from the provision authorizing seizure of tobacco products described above. The bill would make these provisions operative on October 1, 2016.
