City council tables issue concerning raising the age to purchase tobacco, vaping products

Golden is considering implementing a law that would raise the age to 21 to purchase tobacco products within the city.

On Sept. 12, Golden City Council directed staff to draft an ordinance that would “increase the minimum sale age for tobacco products from 18 to 21, establish a ban on flavored vapor products and require local licensing for tobacco retailers,” states city documents.

City councilmembers discussed the draft ordinance at length on Oct. 10, but decided additional language was needed and tabled the issue until Nov. 7 to give staff time to work on it.

A revised version of the ordinance will be presented on Nov. 7, and city council could entertain another discussion on the issue. A date for a public hearing and vote on the issue will follow the Nov. 7 date.
