General Tobacco products, including Bronco, Champion, GT, Silver and 32⁰ cigarettes, will no longer be sold here. The company owes Washington more than $7 million in missed payments required by the Master Settlement Agreement.
Retailers and wholesalers who have existing, “stamped” cigarettes manufactured by General Tobacco may continue to sell them through Feb. 19, then must remove any remaining inventory from their shelves. The stamps signify that taxes have already been collected.
