I’m sure many of you have heard about this already, but I think it’s extremely important so I wanted to send out the word. CASAA announced earlier today that the San Francisco E-liquid Flavor Ban has passed. The board will vote again next week in hopes of making the decision final. This is not just limited to San Francisco residents, it could potentially affect all of us. If it does go through, the San Francisco E-liquid Flavor Ban will likely be used to support anti-vaping proposals in other states. Please read below for more info.

San Francisco E-liquid Flavor Ban – CASAA (6/22/17):
“In a surprise move, the San Francisco Board of Supervisors passed the ordinance that will ban the sale of flavored e-liquid and smoke-free tobacco products within the city. Although this move could be dismissed as expediting the process, it doesn’t make this ordinance any less reckless and dangerous. The Board will vote one more time, next week, to make the decision final.
But the Board’s decision doesn’t mean we have to quietly take their abuse. On the contrary, we must voice our opposition and do it loudly!
What happened in San Francisco is just the start of a shortsighted policy movement that will restrict our access to low-risk tobacco and nicotine products. Anti-vaping activists in New Jersey and New York City will use San Francisco’s decision as support for their own proposals. And we should all be aware that proposals to ban or limit flavors are being discussed in Washington, DC.
This is not just about San Francisco. The Board of Supervisor’s decision has NATIONAL consequences.
If smoke-free products that come in flavors other than tobacco have helped you significantly reduce or quit smoking, please take action NOW! (This is not limited to residents of San Francisco).”
