San Diego Bans Sale Of Flavored Tobacco, Vape Products

The delayed implementation is aimed at giving shop owners time to offload inventory

The San Diego City Council voted Monday to ban the sale of flavored tobacco and vape products starting in 2023.

The proposal put forward by Councilmember Marni von Wilpert exempts shisha, premium cigars, loose-leaf tobacco and FDA-approved smoking cessation devices. Unflavored e-cigarettes and those flavored like tobacco are also exempt.

The delayed implementation is aimed at giving shop owners time to offload their inventory and adjust their business plans.

Supporters of the ban argue big tobacco companies have added candy-like flavors to their products to get youth hooked on nicotine so they become lifelong smokers and vapers.
