Proposition 31 – Keep Ban on Flavored Tobacco


Big Tobacco corporations have targeted young people, and particularly youth of color, by promoting flavors such as mango and cotton candy. These companies see profits in getting kids hooked on their dangerous and unhealthy products. And in large part, it has worked – youth report in large numbers that they started smoking through flavored tobacco. The legislature passed a law two years ago banning the sale of these products, but the monied interests have spent millions to stop the law from going into effect and put this referendum on the ballot. A “yes” vote will result in keeping our ban on flavored tobacco.
