Flavor Ban in Richmond California

/Flavor Ban in Richmond California

The Richmond City Council will be conducting a study session to discuss policy options regarding amendments to the existing Tobacco Retail License (TRL) scheme. These amendments include a flavor ban component. According to the agenda item (K-2) we may have a reasonable shot at educating officials.

DISCUSS proposed amendments to the Tobacco Retailer License Ordinance, and PROVIDE DIRECTION to staff on policy options, including outreach, education and schedule for implementation of regulations, scope of a ban on sale of flavored tobacco products, scope of a ban on sale of cigarettes with menthol flavor and other flavored tobacco products, minimum pack size, and location of new tobacco retailers – City Attorney’s Office (Bruce Reed Goodmiller 620-6509).

The more vapers and vapor industry stakeholders can attend this hearing and address the issues, the better.
