Kommunfullmäktige i San Fransisco har totalförbjudit all försäljning av e-cig i stan.
Från i Adolscent Health Round Up. Nyhetssammanfattning publicerad i juni av SAHM (Society for Adolescent Health and Medicine):
San Francisco’s Board of Supervisors voted unanimously Tuesday to ban the sale and distribution of e-cigarettes in the city. The city is the corporate home of Juul Labs, the biggest producer of e-cigarettes in the United States.
City Attorney Dennis Herrera co-authored the ordinance, and celebrated the final vote. ”This is a decisive step to help prevent another generation of San Francisco children from becoming addicted to nicotine,” he says.
”This temporary moratorium wouldn’t be necessary if the federal government had done its job,” says Herrera. ”E-cigarettes are a product that, by law, are not allowed on the market without FDA review. For some reason, the FDA has so far refused to follow the law. If the federal government is not going to act, San Francisco will.”
