On Oct. 1, Mayor Michael B. Hancock signed a new bill in the City and County building that would prohibit tobacco sales to anyone under the age of 21. The Denver City Council had voted unanimously to approve the bill during their meeting the night before. After he signed the bill, Hancock and Bob McDonald, the executive director of the Denver Department of Health and Environment answered some questions on the bill. The new bill requires that any stores selling tobacco products must be licensed through the city.
