Sacramento Flavor Ban Public Hearing on October 23rd

A Sacramento City Council committee will hear public testimony on a proposed e-liquid flavor ban on Tuesday, Oct. 23, at 3:00 p.m. The meeting will be held at the council chamber, on the first floor of the city hall, at 915 I Street.

Vapers, business owners, and other interested parties will be able to address the Law and Legislation Committee. The committee will be considering the proposed ban, which has already been the subject of a raucous meeting with local business owners, many of them convenience and grocery store owners who are very engaged in the fight against a ban (see video).

Stefan Didak of Not Blowing Smoke is organizing vaping opposition to the ban, and is suggesting that those who wish to give testimony be prepared to speak for one minute. Be sure to make the point that flavors are a crucial element in making vaping effective for you. Most non-vapers don’t understand how important flavors are in keeping former smokers off cigarettes.

Vapers attending the meeting are encouraged to meet outside at 2:00 p.m. to discuss strategy for the meeting. The idea is to make sure that those who want to speak get to the front of the room in a timely manner, and spectators enter behind them. And keep an eye on the Not Blowing Smoke site for any updates on the hearing.
