Tobacco Permit


The City of Carson's Tobacco Retailer's Permit Program was created to encourage responsible tobacco retailing and to discourage violations of tobacco-related laws that prohibit the sale or distribution of tobacco products to minors and prohibit the display of tobacco products from being within reach of the public. A valid city business license and tobacco permit must be obtained before any tobacco related retailing activity can commence.

Please refer to the links below for detailed tobacco retailing requirements and forms.
