Edgewater, CO – Stop a Flavor Ban!

07/20/21 – Public Hearing

The Edgewater City Council is moving forward with an ordinance to ban the sale of vapor and tobacco products in flavors other than tobacco.

Following a public hearing on July 20, council voted unanimously to pass the first reading. This bill will come back to coucil at a later date for discussion and final vote. Please continue contacting council members and urge them to reject the flavor ban.

If passed, the flavor ban will take effect on November 1, 2021.

While the proposed ordinance will step up enforcement with more compliance checks and wisely eliminate criminalising purchase, use, possession by minors, banning flavored products that are safer alternatives to smoking for millions of people is a step too far.

  • State that you are opposed to the flavor ban in Ordinance 2021-13 and any other legislation that would ban safer alternatives to smoking.
  • Share your experience with switching to smoke-free alternatives, like vaping, and any changes to your health since you quit smoking.
  • Remind council members that recent research shows that a flavor ban in San Francisco led to an increase in smoking among young people. (Here’s the study by Abigail Friedman, from Yale.)
  • Discuss what role, if any, flavors have in helping you live smoke-free. Sharing which flavor finally convinced you to ditch cigarettes is a good place to start.
  • Be brief, be kind, and say Thank You!  🙂
