JACKSON, Tenn. — A beer license for a new business is delayed after an incomplete application was submitted to the Beer Board. Hassan Sallouth is opening Tobacco World Incorporated on North Highland Avenue. However, the Jackson Beer Board delayed the approval of the license due to some disturbing questions about who was applying, Hassan or his brother, Hussein. “There was some confusion which brother was applying, and Hussein had a felony conviction related to the sales of synthetic marijuana, so that caused us to look at it more closely,” Jackson city attorney Lewis Cobb said. The city attorney’s office will be working with Hassan to develop the application to be presented at the next Beer Board meeting in July.
