Default Rules and authorizations to sell hookahs

Hi all!
I'm new at the states , before I moved used to deal a lot with Hookahs.
I want to sell them at the states or opening a Hookah bar.
I don't really know the rules here, so if you can help me....
about permits you need, authorizations ,is it legal? how can people smoke in a bar?customs problems? and everything that can help.

thanks a lot
Gene

actually it depends on where you are. NY is 19 for smoking. Where are you located?

you will need a business license, get the right code for tax filing for selling tobacco. im not to sure how the sale of tobacco stuff works, you may need to talk to the ATF (alcohol tobacco, firearms). gota card of course,

some places like to hassle hookah lounges and people that smoke hookahs but if you are in a large city or area with a large 18-20s crowd you should be ok.

for age its pretty much 18 everywhere except NY but or smoking inside it depends on state and jurisdiction and how the law is written

seriously we just need to reorganize the US: new england, texas, alaska, cali, hawaii, the south (east of mississippi and south of mason dixon line), and then the rest. all separate countries, they already act that way basically

yeah it all depends what state your in and your counties local laws on smoking and bars. you need to go down to a town hall type of faculity or sumthing and find out exactly what are the rules and how to get permits for that..

It all depends... a Google search came up with this for CT.

http://cga.ct.gov/2003/rpt/2003-R-0466.htm

From there you could go to the local city hall and talk, but it all depends on How you want to sell thing and what you want to sell.

its probably going to be harder and you will probably be taxed out the arse.

im not sure exactly how it is up it CT but in new england area in general there are really high tobacco taxes (my friend was paying almost double for cigs and dip in Mass.)

go talk to your local gov't and see if its doable
good luck
