No flavor ban in Oakley. While I never allow myself to call anything a “win” since most wins are always of a temporary nature anyway, I think we can safely say that a flavor ban will not be part of the consideration in Oakley.
An hour ago we (Chuck Allen and Stefan Didak) along with two other valued NBS allies, engaged the city council in a work session on flavored tobacco and restrictions. At the end of that common sense prevailed with three of the council members agreeing that age restrictions need to be enforced, banning the sale of legal products to adults is silly, and that people need to parent their kids and that is not a job for the government.
Oakley will at some point consider creating a tobacco retail license program but a date or even rough date for any of this work to start couldn’t be given. It will certainly be a while.
