The Wisconsin Department of Revenue’s announcement that it will start requiring roll your own cigarette retailers to voluntarily comply with state law regulating the manufacture and distribution of cigarettes has already been the subject of approving press releases from the American Cancer Society, the American Lung Association and Smoke Free Wisconsin.
I figured the folks at ‘Smokes on State‘, a roll your own outlet a few blocks down from our office would be ready to comment. I was wrong. Not only was I the first reporter to stop by the shop, I was also the first person to make them aware of DOR’s action. Not surprisingly the proprietor wasn’t ready to give an interview. Stay tuned on that. In the meantime WRN‘s Andrew Beckett has spoken with DOR and will have the details this afternoon.
