- In Chicago, flavored tobacco products cannot be sold within 500 feet of a school.
- To help tobacco retailers comply with the law, the Chicago Department of Public Health and the Department of Business Affairs and Consumer Protections maintain a non-exclusive database of flavored tobacco products that are restricted near schools. The flavored tobacco product database is available here.
