Read Dr. Siegel on the SF e-cig ban: "From a public health perspective, this is the most insane piece of legislation I have ever seen." https://t.co/6MLVorbJLV
This is idiotic. Cigarettes kill more than 400,000 Americans a year and SF is banning the far safer product that competes with them. https://t.co/EmYVoK4zF9
Yes, the vaping 'epidemic' is the biggest problem facing teens today.
I asked around. You either made this up out of thin air or someone gave you bad information.
The youth epidemic started as a JUUL phenomenon - a single sponsor prompted policy to shift for an entire segment. JUUL is lobbying for JUUL rules to help exempt JUUL from obligations; but it’s doubtful JUUL rules will similarly help thousands of vape stores that target adults.
Marijuana is a Schedule 1 drug and is sold & used freely in SF. Heroin users are (rightfully) supported with tacit approval of safe injection sites.
Vaping? Nope, you need to get FDA approval to sell it. Unless, of course, the FDA approves a flavored e-cig. They're still banned
This legislation takes a reasoned approach. It doesn’t ban e-cigarettes outright. It simply says that if a tobacco product is required to have FDA approval to be on the market, it can’t be sold in San Francisco until it receives that approval. That’s just common sense.
