Flavored tobacco? Nope, not in our state.

Californians stood together and said no to Big Tobacco’s favorite tactic of using flavored tobacco to addict people to nicotine. No more kid-friendly flavors like Banana Ice, strawberry, and mint masking the harsh taste of tobacco. No more deadly targeting of Black communities with menthol cigarettes. No more flavored chemicals damaging our lungs. California retailers are now prohibited from selling most flavored tobacco products, including vapes and menthol cigarettes. And now is the perfect time for those who vapes or use menthol cigarettes to quit. Anyone looking to quit using tobacco products can visit KickItCA.org to get free quitting help.
