Background: In November 2022, the City of Lawrence Commission unanimously adopted a policy which codifies a tobacco retail licensing program. Consistent with other public health regulations and licensing, the policy endows Lawrence-Douglas County Public Health with the authority to manage the Tobacco Retail Licensing Program and administer related compliance checks. Your business is listed in the State of Kansas database for tobacco retailers, and we are reaching out to make you aware of the planned process for implementation of the Tobacco Retail Licensing Program. This policy takes effect on January 1st. Please visit for a set of comprehensive information related to the Tobacco Retail Licensing Program. The application needs to be accompanied by a payment for the license fee, which is $260. The license fee can be paid online ( or by mailing payment to: LDCPH c/o Tobacco Retail Licensing, 200 Maine Ste. B, Lawrence, KS 66044. During the first year of operation (2023), applications and license payments need to be submitted no later than January 31, 2023. Businesses operating without a license are subject to penalties
