Smokeless Tobacco Law

Effective March 2016, it is illegal for anyone to use smokeless tobacco at a sports arena or recreational arena that issues tickets for assigned seats or standing room to any event.

The law prohibits the use of any tobacco product that is intended for oral or nasal use. Restricted products include, but are not limited to, chewing tobacco, dipping tobacco, snus, snuff, and dissolvable tobacco products.

Operators of arenas must:

  • Update their "No Smoking" signs to inform their employees and the public that the use of smokeless tobacco is also prohibited.
  • Inform smokeless tobacco users that they are breaking the law.
