Marin County, another municipality on the long list recently published by Not Blowing Smoke, has decided to move forward with the introduction of a flavor ban. Introduction of this ordinance is scheduled for September 11th at 9:30am in San Rafael.
The city clerk in Sacramento confirmed that the flavor ban item will NOT be on the agenda for Aug 28th. We are calling off the rally but please watch this space for updates. No new date has been provided. The language of the ordinance is not ready yet.
As you can see from the video, Amber decided to mention our opposition and call us "a page out of the Philip Morris playbook". Which does not surprise us considering that ideological anti-tobacco crusaders will always try and smear any opposition as being the work of "evil big tobacco companies".
DO NOT WATCH THIS VIDEO IF YOU ARE A VAPER! But if you think you can stomach this and if you love paying attention to detail then certainly this will be 10 minutes of your life you'll never get back. Ever. Again. The future of flavor bans is pretty much explained in it.
Thank you, Councilmember Kinney, for your position and common sense approach to preserving the freedom of choice for adults. This is a very sharp contrast to the mayhem, ignorance, and desire to legislate behavior and morality in Beverly Hills!
Beverly Hills, CA in its 2:30pm Study Session with the City Council has decided to move ahead with their proposed prohibition on the sales of flavored tobacco products and will introduce this tonight at their regular 7pm council meeting.
The San Pablo city council meeting just concluded with one council member in opposition to the idea of prohibiting the sales of flavored tobacco products in the city. This means staff has now received direction on writing a city-wide no-exemptions style flavor ban that includes menthol. When finished this ordinance will be introduced in a future city council meeting for its first reading.
Thanks for being troopers today in the first stages of a flavor ban coming to town in Los Angeles County, Jay Love and John JJ Jenkins. You put a professional and respectable face on the vapor industry. You both did amazing, especially considering the time limit change to one minute and sitting around for hours with only limited entertainment. Now let's start preparing for battle.
