Flavored e-cigarettes are latest target of California lawmakers

FOX- California legislators plan to introduce a bill to ban the sale of flavored tobacco products in retail stores and vending machines in an effort to curb a rise in e-cigarette use among teens, officials said Thursday.

Twenty-six of its cities and counties already have restrictions on the sale of flavored tobacco products, but California would be the first to implement a statewide ban, the San Francisco Chronicle reported.

Led by state Sen. Jerry Hill, D-San Mateo, the six lawmakers plan to introduce the bill Monday.

“We must stop the appalling epidemic of e-cigarette use by youths,” Hill said in a statement. “Enticed by fruit, candy and other appealing flavors, high school and middle school students throughout the U.S. are vaping in record numbers. The surge has reversed the decline in underage use of all tobacco products.”  MORE HERE

  2. I suppose the ‘vaping-ers’ might turn to alcohol or….meth or who knows….bath salts.
    Ah, rest assured, the libs will come up with the most common-sense answer. Despite their denial that abstinence is the best prevention of birth and stds.

  4. As far as I’m concerned, he needs to come clean with the citizens of our country before he makes his peace with God. Simply begging for an entrance through the Pearly Gates isn’t good enough as far as all of our fellow Patriots are concerned! Chickenshit son of a bitch!

  5. Gotta say this is a remedy in search of a problem. While I can understand parents not wanting their kids to become addicted to Nicotine, this is pretty much what I told my Doctor:

    “Hospitals and advanced Medical offices vaporize Propylene Glycol or Vegetable Glycerin in their air systems to supress the spread of airborne viruses and bacteria. I could not quit smoking by any other means, not for lack of trying, so I apologize in advance if someone has to smell a pleasant odor in vapor that encapsulates anything I exhale, and possibly inhale a chemical that makes them more attentive for a short time. Oh, what a shame!” She laughed and said she had never heard it said that way, but I am right about its use in the Medical industry.

    Most of the kids that I have talked to about vaping are afraid of being addicted to Nicotine, and I don’t blame them at all.

    This ridiculous crusade gives a bunch of marginally educated incompetents the ability to steal money from the Tobacco Settlement for non-profit activism, which will never be likely to help anyone who got cancer from smoking.

  6. E-cigarettes don’t contain any tobacco.
    Vaping isn’t smoking.
    Maybe they should outlaw bubble-gum and candy cigarettes, too?
    How bout sticks of chalk? Some kid might, some day, hold a piece of chalk like a cigarette …
    But sucking on dope and dicks is encouraged?

    These people are fucking lunatics.
