Today at the Health & Safety Commission meeting in Beverly Hills CA the decision was made to instruct the city staff to start writing a flavor ban ordinance and to engage with local retailers and community on the issue and seek public input at a next hearing (February) at which a draft of the ordinance to prohibit the sales of flavored tobacco products will likely be presented.
On Monday January 22, 2018, at 4:00 PM, the City of Beverly Hills Health and Safety Commission will meet and discuss the sale of flavored tobacco products in Beverly Hills. The public is welcome to attend this meeting and provide comment on the topic.
That said the meeting was just a formality and I don't think they cared much for what we had to say. Vice Mayor Gold is clearly anti tobacco of all kinds. Even urged chew should be added and "every other form of tobacco regardless of how it's ingested". He also claimed vapor is just as bad as smoking. I think a few tens of thousands of his medical peers would disagree.
