Last year, Anniston, Ala. kept a law allowing for cigar bars within the northeastern Alabama city—now it’s already considering loosening the rules about where cigar bars can be located.
The original law required cigar bars to be located in freestanding building, but the Anniston City Council is now considering allowing for cigar bars to be located on the top floor of buildings so long as the cigar bar is the sole occupant on the floor.
In addition, they will have to have a sufficient air filtration system and keep at least $50,000 worth of cigars in inventory.
According to The Anniston Star, The modification was brought on by James Roberts who said he has a deal in place to lease a space on the top of a building on 10th and Noble Street. It got its first reading in the city council on Monday.
Anniston is located in Calhoun County with a population over 20,000.
