Nevada lawmakers will hear the first details of a bill that would require the owners of manual cigarette machines obtain business licenses from the state.
AB83 would require owners of “roll your own” machines to obtain a Nevada business license and gives law enforcement the right to seize or destroy unauthorized machines. The bill is scheduled for a hearing in the Assembly Taxation Committee on Thursday.
Committee chair Assemblyman Derek Armstrong said the Nevada Attorney General’s Office requested the bill’s creation and that it would differentiate between commercial and private cigarette-rolling machines.
“Roll your own” machines allow smokers to roll their own cigarettes using loose tobacco and rolling paper.
