In 2018, The FDA and US Surgeon General declared E-cigarette use to be an ‘epidemic among teens.

There were previously NO licensing requirements to sell e-cigarettes and therefore no regulation on whether they are selling these nicotine products to minors BEFORE the Tobacco Retail License (TRL) passed in Alachua County January 22nd, 2019 – Effective date: October 22nd, 2019.

The Tobacco Retail License (TRL) will:

  • create local oversight of this unregulated industry
  • fund compliance checks to help ensure that retailers are not selling e-cigarettes to kids.
