Tennessee Smoking Laws

Tennessee is taking a cautious wait and see approach to the use of e-cigarettes. They are more liberal than many other states and may be waiting for FDA statements. The American Heart Association recently reported that marketing e-cigarettes needs to be curbed. A survey found that 48% of e-cig users said television as where they heard about them. Youth exposure to e-cigarette advertising, according to a study in Pediatrics, skyrocketed over 250 percent from 2011 to 2013, effectively reaching 24 million young people during that two-year period. Here are the basic tobacco laws for Tennessee:

The Law

Tennessee smoking law states that it is unlawful for any person under the age of 18 to purchase, possess, or accept tobacco or tobacco products. It is also unlawful for said minor to falsify his or her age in order to obtain tobacco or tobacco products. TENN. CODE ANN. § 39-17-1505

The Penalties

In Tennessee, minors who use or purchase tobacco products may face penalties as a deterrent to underage tobacco use. For a first offense, the fine can range from $10 to $50, emphasizing the financial consequences of violating tobacco regulations. This initial penalty aims to discourage minors from engaging in tobacco-related activities.

In the case of subsequent offenses, the fine remains within the same range of $10 to $50. Along with the fine, minors may also be required to enroll in a tobacco education class. This educational component is designed to raise awareness about the risks and consequences associated with tobacco use, further discouraging repeat offenses.

In addition to fines and tobacco education, minors may be obligated to complete up to 50 hours of community service. This requirement aims to instill a sense of responsibility and encourage positive engagement within the community. By combining community service with other penalties, the state of Tennessee seeks to deter underage tobacco use and promote a sense of accountability among minors.

Overall, minors in Tennessee who use or purchase tobacco products may face fines ranging from $10 to $50 for both first and subsequent offenses. Additionally, they may be required to participate in a tobacco education program and complete community service hours. These penalties aim to discourage underage tobacco use and promote awareness of the risks associated with such behavior.
