Default What do you do

Hey guys i need some help. There is a Lounge that is selling Shisha which is a Tobacco product.. to Minor's. Plus they do not have a Tobacco License to resell tobacco. What do you do in this situation?

i would report them personally. that kind of activity will bring heat down on ur lounge and and then the media will get out of control and start portraying the hookah in a bad light. it's hard enough to hear a news story about our hobby now with positive undertones, something like that would be very bad.

Scorth them Smiley. Like what ^^^ said, that just exemplifies the "bad reputation" Hookah gets. Try to do it as descretely as possible without making a big commotion, and keep the media away. Good Luck!

I would try to persuade them to not do it. You can always use the threat of reporting, though reports from a competitor may not be taken seriously. Alerting that business that there is a problem is a friendlier way to handle it. It gives the other lounge a chance to get onboard and save face without involving the law, media, etc. 8) Also less likely to result in false reporting on your business, if you catch my drift.

Ok It really pisses me off. He is turning face when it comes to Minors. Also selling Tobacco with out a License. I turned them in. I had one of my Regulars call them in to the right people to file a complaint. Health department and ATF. So hopefully this will stop. Because I follow the law. I pay my taxes. This guys is not doing any of those things. So we turned him in. I feel kind of Bad. But oh well. I do not want the Hookah Lifestyle being Tarnished by people like him.

We still haven't heard anything about this situation. But he did have a write up done on him. They mentioned the hookahs and Showed people Smokeing in the restuaunt. so it is only a matter of time. Also the Atf said they would be conducting a Op. Sending in Minor to the estabishment and catching them in the act. But as for now. We will see.. Guys thanks for the support. I truly feel wierd in this situation. I just have to do the right thing.
