Issues? Call the City Clerk 406-552-6078
The Missoula City Council is moving forward with a proposal to ban the sale of flavored vapor products.
The ordinance is scheduled for discussion and possible action by the Public Safety and Health Committee on November 18, 2020 at 9:00AM via a Zoom Webinar.
This is likely the final step before this proposal is considered by the full city council.
Suggested Talking Points for your Comments, Phone Calls, and Public Testimony:
- Tell Your Story! How long did you smoke and how long have you been smoke-free? Also, if you tried to quit in the past, how many attempts did you make and what products did you use?
- What flavors did you use and is variety important to you?
- Explain what a flavor ban will mean for you. Will your favorite shop be forced to close? Will you shop out of state, online, or turn to an underground seller?
- Note any changes in your health. Most people report recovering their sense of taste and smell, but others are experiencing more significant improvements. Have you experienced positive changes to your health since switching to vaping?
