    by Winston Chua

    SAN GABRIEL – The San Gabriel City Council Tuesday nightagreed to place stricter requirements and penalties to tobacco retailers in theCity. The purposes of the adaptations include promoting the health of those wholive in San Gabriel as well as protecting minors.

    Anti-smoking activist Roy Rossell said, “The triumph forevil is mankind doing nothing. You are doing something great for the community;something courageous and historical.”

    To sell tobacco in the City requires a valid tobacco retaillicense. One way to violate the conditions of that license is to sell tobaccoproducts and paraphernalia to minors. Should this be the case, they will havetheir license suspended for 30 days. If the retailer violates conditions for alicense a second time within a span of five years, the license will besuspended for up to 90 days. A third violation in that time span will result ina revoked license.

    The City plans to explore the fees of licensing in the nearfuture, which will detail the who, what, when and where of the implementationand annual fees.

    Wesley Reutimann said that true change happens when laws areenforced.
