Military Tobacco Sales & Use Under Review

Null

The Navy’s attempts to restrict the sale of tobacco on its bases has been delayed as the Department of Defense investigates the possibility of widespread restrictions on tobacco use and sales.

According to a report from Military Times, there is now support for investigating whether service members could be prohibited from using tobacco on bases. However, after the Navy announced it was considering banning tobacco the House Armed Service Committee added language preventing the ban into its Y2015 defense authorization bill. The language would specifically prevent the military from banning the sale of legal products sold at its commissaries.

A spokeswoman told Military Times the Department of Defense plans to present its findings to Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel in the fall.
