Tobacco Retailer License Suspended

(Portland, OR) -- The State of Oregon has temporarily suspended the license of a tobacco retailer in Sheridan for violating tobacco retail sales laws. It's the first time a retailer's license has been suspended for violations. Licenses can be suspended when a business receives three or more civil penalties for violating tobacco sales laws. The Sheridan retailer had three violations, including two when tobacco was sold to someone under the age of 21. The license suspension is for 14 days. The Oregon Department of Revenue and Oregon Health Authority conduct regular inspections to make sure retailers are following the law.
