No to Camel Candy, Yes to Tobacco Licensing
Stores around Colorado are now selling candy-like tobacco products from the RJ Reynolds Tobacco Company, the same company that gave us the Joe Camel cartoon character to sell Camel cigarettes. RJ Reynolds Tobacco is testing candy-like tobacco products called dissolvables in retail stores in North Carolina and Colorado. RJ Reynolds has a long, documented history of targeting children. We need your help to stop RJ Reynolds and prevent kids from getting these new and other tobacco products in our retail stores. Colorado is missing an important tool to help prevent kids from getting tobacco illegally: licensing for those who sell tobacco. Sadly, Colorado does not require a retail license to sell tobacco.
Sign our petition and add your name to the growing list of individuals and organizations calling on RJ Reynolds to immediately end their test marketing of their candy-like tobacco products and remove them from Colorado stores and supporting efforts by our local governments and state legislature to license tobacco retailers to help prevent the illegal sale of these new, and all, tobacco products to our children.
