County Moves to Implement Restrictions on Flavored Tobacco and Vaping Products

01/28/20

With today’s Board Action, the County has taken the final step to put the health of our children and our communities over the profits of big tobacco. I appreciate Supervisors Jacob’s leadership working together with us on every step of this effort and am grateful for the support of Supervisor Cox. Today was the final step to implement a ban on the sale of flavored smoking products, a moratorium on the sale and distribution of all electronic smoking devices, and a prohibition on smoking in outdoor dining patio areas which will take effect July 1, 2020. I am encouraged by the number of local jurisdictions taking or planning to take similar action and stand ready to help them in their efforts.
