Legislation, Senate bill 38, that would ban the sale of flavored tobacco, including menthol, has been scheduled for a vote in the Senate Health Committee on March 27th.
California like most of the country is experiencing a youth e-cigarette epidemic. The American Heart Association supports Senate Bill 38 because currently 8 in 10 kids start tobacco use with a flavored tobacco product. In addition, between 2017 and 2018 we have seen a 78 percent increase in e-cigarette use by high school students. We can’t let this trend continue. We need to take action now!
It's time to ban flavored tobacco before another generation is hooked.
