Last night at the SF-DPH meeting a few things got confirmed. In no particular order: Sales of 0-nic products are allowed and the retailer can sell nicotine separately that can then be applied by the customer.

“The ban on the sale is not just limited to nicotine,” said Keith Sterling, public information manager for the City of Beverly Hills. “For example, any electronic cigarette that emits a taste or aroma other than that of tobacco would also qualify under the restrictions.
