Santa Barbara County Supervisors hope some new rules will keep tobacco out of the hands of minors.
They voted unanimously today to ban all new businesses from selling tobacco products within 1,000 feet of a school. It will also strengthen penalties and fees. Retailers caught breaking the law three times within five years, will lose their license permanently. Surveys show in the past three years, about a third of illegal tobacco sales in the county happened within 1,000 feet of a school.
