Flavored Tobacco Ban Informational Report

Posted on April 11, 2019

No Smoking Sign

Over the last 12 months, several of our neighboring jurisdictions (including the County of Marin, Town of San Anselmo, and City of Larkspur, to name a few) have approved bans on flavored tobacco and the sale of tobacco at pharmacies. The purpose of a flavored tobacco ban is to combat the increase in youth tobacco and nicotine use attributed to the availability of flavored tobacco products such as e-cigarettes and vaping products. This discussion will focus on a potential City ordinance that, if approved, would ban the sale of flavored tobacco across the City.
