To All Tobacco Sales Permit Holders:
On May 3, 2018, the Danvers Board of Health, acting under authority of MGL Chapter 111, Section 31, voted to restrict the sales of flavored nicotine products. A copy of the regulation which takes effect January 1, 2019 may be found at danversma.gov/departments/board-of-health/.
In sum, this regulation prohibits the sale of all flavored tobacco products; except for mint flavors, in stores that are not age-restricted to 21-plus. This includes liquid nicotine, and smokeless tobacco products as well. To help eliminate any confusion and to allow for all retailer questions to be answered, we have scheduled several training dates in conjunction with the City of Peabody Board of Health.
