The provisions of this section shall not apply to persons who own and stock vending machines for use on their own premises.

Nothing in this section shall be construed as requiring a license for the privilege of buying, selling or distributing leaf tobacco nor shall this section apply to churches, schools or charitable organizations operating booths at state, county, or community fairs or to school or church entertainments.
