Flavored Tobacco Product Ban Imposed in San Francisco


Those against the flavor ban argue that such a ban is an overreach by the government and that it takes away an adult’s ability to choose what he or she wants to smoke. They also argue that such bans harm businesses of all sizes and that it could create an illicit market with consumers looking toward other black market sources to purchase these now illegal products. The fear is that similar to the now popular Tobacco 21 laws, other cities and states will now attempt to pass similar flavor bans.
