Tobacco 21

 

The sale of tobacco products is prohibited in San Francisco to those under 21 years old. There are no exceptions in the local law, including no exceptions for military personnel, even though the California Stop Tobacco Access to Kids Enforcement (CA STAKE) act allows that exception elsewhere in California.

 

SFDPH prepared a Tobacco 21 Notice suitable for printing and posting in businesses.

 

All tobacco establishments must post the following at the tobacco products point of sale area:

Signage can be requested through the San Francisco Tobacco Free Project.
