The Marin County Supervisors will be reading the flavor ban ordinance by title only in the upcoming meeting on October 30th with the intention of having a merit hearing on the ordinance scheduled for November 6th, at 10:30AM. It is of the utmost importance that retailers and consumers are present at this meeting to express their concerns about this ordinance. Actions and votes are likely to be taken at this meeting and things may move very rapidly from that point forward.
On the same day we were able to deal with the flavor ban in Oakley, but earlier in the morning, the Marin County flavor ban hearing got postponed until a later date. A date that hasn't been set yet. Watch this space because it won't be going away but it will likely incorporate several exemptions or grandfathering clauses for existing businesses to continue doing business as usual.
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.
