State officials are putting part of the state’s new anti-tobacco law on hold. Two Iowa convenience store owners have sued to protest the portion of the law which they say bans important “in-store” marketing. Bob Brammer, a spokesman for Iowa’s Attorney General, says the dispute is over just a couple of sentences. Those sentences ban any freebie give-aways, and also prohibits two-for-one sales. Brammer says until the issue’s resolved, the state won’t enforce that part of the new lawThe lawsuit was filed by William Miller, who owns Bill’s World in Sioux City, and Terry Jones, who owns three convenience stores in western Iowa.
