Exceptions include private residences that are not being used for commercial childcare, adult care, or healthcare; retail tobacco and vape shops; designed smoking guest rooms in hotels; and stand-alone bars.

Tobacco/Vapor 21 Law: Federal law passed December 20, 2019 prohibits sales of all tobacco and vapor products to anyone under the age of 21 years old. FDA stated law became effective on that date.
