SUBJECT:
CONSIDER AN ORDINANCE AMENDING THE ENID MUNICIPAL CODE 2014, TITLE 5, “PUBLIC SAFETY”, CHAPTER 6, “MINORS", ARTICLE A “TOBACCO AND VAPOR PRODUCTS”, SECTION 5-6A-1, “DEFINITIONS” TO ADD “PROOF OF AGE” AND STANDARIZE DEFINITIONS; SECTION 5-6A-2, “PURCHASE OR POSSESSION BY MINORS OF TOBACCO OR VAPOR PRODUCTS” TO CLARIFY LANGUAGE; EXCEPTION FOR MINOR EMPLOYEES; SECTION 5-6A-3, “SELL, GIVE, OR FURNISH TOBACCO OR VAPOR PRODUCTS TO MINORS";  PROVIDING FOR REPEALER, SAVINGS CLAUSE, SEVERABILITY AND CODIFICATION.
BACKGROUND:

This ordinance amends the Enid Municipal Code to provide the most current wording of offenses involving the possession or attempted procurement of tobacco or vapor products by a minor. It also prohibits the sale or furnishing of tobacco or vapor products to minors.

While the President has signed an executive order raising the legal age to 21 for purchase of tobacco or vapor products, the State of Oklahoma’s legal age to possess or purchase these products remains 18 years of age. This ordinance was reviewed at the January 7, 2020 Study Session.

RECOMMENDATION:
Approve the ordinance. 
PRESENTER:
