It appears the “Yes on Prop E” committee who are in favor of PROHIBITION of flavored vapor products in San Francisco is terribly afraid of admitting to their prohibitionist tendencies and has been instructing their canvassers to not use the word “BAN” in public. This is nothing short of deplorable. Trying to twist words and make it sound like it’s anything less than a ban is a sign of weakness, avoidance, and frankly misleading to San Francisco voters.
