New law on tobacco sales in place

Hall said during the remainder of the 2004 marketing season, tobacco may be sold at any warehouse or receiving station of the producer's choice, without the need to redesignate, using whatever valid marketing card the producer has for that particular farm as long as there is space for marketings to be recorded on the card.
