The city of Tempe, Arizona in the U.S. is considering making retailers buy a license to sell tobacco, including e-cigarettes.

A proposal from a council committee calls for a citywide registry of businesses that sell tobacco, along with a process to revoke licenses for retailers who repeatedly sell to minors, according to Frontera Desk.

It also suggests raising the age to buy tobacco products to 21. Federal law already prohibits purchases to anyone under 21, but Arizona does not have a similar state law.

Tempe will hold two community meetings and an online survey in March before the council takes up the issue in April or May.
