POS Policy Implementation

Tobacco marketing in community stores drives tobacco use. Communities may reduce harmful exposure to this marketing. (See our Point of Sale Policies resources for effective policy options.) Upon determining a feasible sales regulation, a community will select how to implement the regulation. Requiring a local license to sell tobacco products is an effective implementation method that helps simplify enforcement of the sales regulation and can quickly yield desired results. Alternate implementation methods for regulating sales of tobacco products include adopting an ordinance directly specifying conditions for permissible tobacco product sales, or amending the zoning code. For more information on implementation methods for POS policies, visit our resources below.
