    First thing city have to do I saw lot of stores selling cigarettes , lushi , electric cigarette, flover electric cigarette without license city have to stop that close down that stores. Why you guys bather honest guy like me. I am totally disagree with this law. Lot of families running on business like me. I knew city doing because all about under age but already city have under age 21 law. Already some stores close down because of COVID -19 and you guy want more store will close down. COVID-19 not finished yet. Don’t do that.
