County Moves to Implement Restrictions on Flavored Tobacco and Vaping Products
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.
