It happened. A total ban on the sales of flavored e-cigs and e-liquid in Sonoma, CA. There’s another one coming up soon in El Cerrito, CA.
Everyone needs to be aware of what’s coming because it’s a change in strategy by our opponents. Their strategy is to go after small places with low density of stores, get things passed because there is little to no economic impact, then surround bigger cities and force them to adopt the same thing because “everyone around you has”. Troublesome because now we have to start showing up in cities we have no ties with simply because the vendors in the city alone will not have enough weight. Just like they did during the “tobacco wars”.
Feel free to watch the arguments brought forward by the opposition to this insanity as well as the supporters who feel you should not be allowed to buy flavored vapor products in Sonoma. Also watch the council deliberation video to see just how incredibly ignorant, no scratch that, willfully ignorant, this council was on the topic.
