Sonoma County Considers Implementing Price Floor for Cigarettes, Other Tobacco Products
Sonoma County supervisors are considering new licensing requirements that would call for tobacco retailers to increase the price of a pack of cigarettes to at least $7. The additional money would go to retailers and a program to discourage underage tobacco sales. If they approve the measure, Sonoma County would be the first jurisdiction in the state and the second in the U.S. to set a price floor for tobacco products.
