City of Saratoga Moves to Ban All Tobacco Sales

 Jul 24, 2018

 

 

City of Saratoga Moves to Ban All Tobacco Sales Breathe California has been working closely with the city of Saratoga to restrict the sale of flavored tobacco products, and we are thrilled to share that at the Saratoga City Council meeting on June 20, 2018, the Council decided to move forth with banning the sale of ALL tobacco products! Saratoga deserves kudos for this strong public health stride that will protect their residents from the negative consequences of tobacco use. Behind the scenes we completed public opinion surveys in Saratoga, of which 81% were supportive of a ban on electronic cigarettes/vapes and 89% were supportive of a ban on all flavored tobacco products. All of our other work in Saratoga is documented in a report which was included in the City Council Meeting Agenda. See more here.
