On December 10, 2019, the Eagle Town Board of Trustees passed an Ordinance requiring the licensing of tobacco products to regulate the sale of tobacco products at retail and thereby prohibit sales of tobacco products to youth and to encourage responsible tobacco product retailing.
Chapter 5.16 was added to the Eagle Municipal Code and shall be in effect starting January 2020. Additionally, the language was also added to the Municipal Code regarding tobacco products and underage persons. This created a new definition of tobacco products to include vaping and vape pens, it also added municipal offenses for selling tobacco products to any person under the age of 21.
It will also be unlawful for any person under the age of 21 to purchase, attempt to purchase, possess or consume tobacco products.
