Seems that if you provided service, food was served, you have offered more than enough. If sued you can bring in the other company.

Your best bet, on such an insignificant claim, is to either sue in small claims court, or turn over the matter to your State consumer protection agency. Double billing can also be a crime, in certain circumstances.

Date stamp means date of manufacture--person could conceivably have purchased them before. I don't see a case as you buy it as is. "Excellent condition" is that person's opinion.

Q: In the state of Arizona, what would be required to deliver tobacco products (18+).

What would be required? A tobacco license? Age validation? What steps and legal protections would be necessary in order to (safely) deliver tobacco products to users using a courier service (imagine Postmates).

Peter N. Munsing answered on Oct 4, 2016

You have to be licensed by the state, have a good accounting system for tax collection. Selling out of state? May run into laws on that. Start by contacting the secretary of State's office to see what would be required from the state.
