TEXAS: (UPDATE) All that’s left to deny adults 18-20 who smoke access to much safer products is governor’s signature. And when that doesn’t work, the ANTZ will inevitably move on to sin taxes, flavors bans, online bans, public bans & finally, total bans.
IN THE NEWS: “Obviously the better a product tastes as it relates to flavor and experience, hopefully the easier it is for people to stick to their quit journey,” says Nicorette spokesman about their tasty new lozenge. (Note: It’s NOT “tobacco” flavor.)
SAN RAFAEL, CALIFORNIA: (UPDATE) Despite strong opposition, city bans flavored vapor/smoke-free products, but in an unusual twist, delays enacting for 18 months to see what state and feds will do. Of course, more popular cigarettes still sold everywhere.
ATLANTA, GEORGIA: (HEADS UP!) City mulls banning vaping where smoking banned. Seems reasonable until they start including outdoors, sidewalks, cars, private homes and vape shops. Remember: public bans are ALWAYS just a foot in the door to more laws/taxes.
