Dear Representative Christiansen,

I urge you to support and reopen SB 0089 because it will benefit small tobacco business owners (like myself) to be in compliance with the NHLC. We are being forced to sell cigars and made to put the hookah tobacco sales with the products we are paying meals tax for. There are 2 breakdowns in the old bill 60% cigars and 40% other. It is not fair we should have to sell 60% cigars and cigar accessories, if we opened our business as a "hookah lounge". All that has to be changed is have the words "Hookah Tobacco" added towards the 60% gross revenue, instead of the 40% other. SB 0089 suggests use the word "Shisha", I suggest using "Hookah Tobacco". The word shisha sometimes gets confused with hashish and the instrument suddenly becomes a bong and the whole idea and culture gets misconstrued.

Sincerely,

Deborah Gibbons
