As it is known the number of fires started by cigarettes has increased very much in recent years. That’s why officials decided to introduce new legislations which will decreased the fires caused by smoking products.

For example cigarettes without the new fire-safety paper have to be worked by Jan. 1, 2010. The World Health Organization showed that several Indian area smoke stores are selling cigarettes without a new kind of fire-safety paper demanded by legislation decreed last year.

It bought a lot of cigarettes without fire-safe paper at smoke shops in Tulsa, Broken Arrow, Sapulpa and Beggs. However the new legislation requires cigarettes to be wrapped in fire-safe paper, beginning Jan. 1, 2009, explained Paula Ross, spokeswoman for the Oklahoma Tax Commission.

Smoke shops owners declared that they decided to sell their old inventory bought before the law took effect about 10 months ago. That’s why the new law allows retailers to sell old inventory until Jan. 1, 2010.

Ms. Ross said: “Our plan for after January 1, 2010, is to contact the fire marshal’s office if non-fire-safe cigarettes are found during a routine compliance check.”

Fire-safe paper is designed to extinguish a light cigarette that is not being smoked, because Tulsa Fire Marshal Mike Bailey said that cigarettes were the No. 1 heat source for fatality fires in Tulsa during the past seven years.

Statistics showed that between 2001 and 2008, 59 people lost their lives to fires caused by cigarettes or other smoking products.

Mr. Bailey explained: “Fire-safe paper is a step in the right direction, but there are no totally safe cigarettes.”

He found that smokers purchased cigarettes without the fire-safe paper at five area smoke shops. They include: Riverside Indian Smoke Shop and Mingo Tobacco Outlet in Tulsa; BA Tobacco Outlet in Broken Arrow; White Feather Smoke Shop in Sapulpa; and Duck Creek Smoke Shop near Beggs.

For example the cigarettes being sold without fire-safe paper are Seneca and King Mountain brand cigarettes. The smoke shops are combined with the Muskogee (Creek) Nation.

Most of the Creek-affiliated stores within the Tulsa area refuse to sell the cigarettes, saying they are “illegal” when asked why they don’t sell them.

Seneca and King Mountain cigarettes also are part of a tax discussion between the state and the Creek Nation.

The Creek Nation has confirmed that selling the cigarettes by requiring that the product involves a business deal between sovereign tribes not subject to Oklahoma taxation.
