Here is a quick update on the flavor ban "study session" in Richmond which was held on January 30th, 2018. Kari Hess and I were there earlier tonight. Parts of the hearing were typical. Some parts were a little less so since it was meant to get indications on positions of various city council members.
The Richmond City Council will be conducting a study session to discuss policy options regarding amendments to the existing Tobacco Retail License (TRL) scheme. These amendments include a flavor ban component. According to the agenda item (K-2) we may have a reasonable shot at educating officials.
