Why are there so many enforcement options in ChangeLab Solutions' model tobacco retailer licensing law?

The law provides a broad range of enforcement devices, including license suspensions, fines, criminal actions, and civil lawsuits. These enforcement options are offered as choices to the law drafter and, once the law is enacted, to the enforcement agency. While usually only one remedy would be used in a single case, multiple remedies might be used against a particularly egregious or habitual violator.
