Once Stalled, A Cigarette Tax Hike Is Moving In Oregon Capitol

With just weeks left in Oregon’s legislative session, Democratic leaders have put another contentious issue on their to-do list: a tobacco tax hike. In a hearing Thursday, the House Revenue Committee took up House Bill 2270, a long-dormant bill to raise taxes on cigarettes and other products. After making substantial amendments, the committee moved the bill on. The bill’s newfound momentum sets up what could be another divisive fight as the session approaches adjournment. As with all revenue-raising measures, three-fifths of lawmakers will have to approve the bill to pass it. The new version of House Bill 2270 contains many of the same details it did when introduced by Gov. … Continue reading Once Stalled, A Cigarette Tax Hike Is Moving In Oregon Capitol

Beginning Jan. 1, retailers in Aspen will be banned from selling flavored nicotine products, which includes cigarettes, cigars, chewing tobacco, e-cigarettes and vape pens. Aspen City Council on Monday passed an ordinance approving the ban. It was the last action made by the outgoing council before a new one was sworn in. Monday’s ordinance builds on council’s partial ban made May 20, which was passed for failure of having a majority vote. Because Councilwoman Ann Mullins was not present, council was deadlocked on a full ban 2-2.

Vaping ads on social media must disclose nicotine risk

Washington, DC – The Federal Trade Commission and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) Friday sent four warning letters to firms that manufacture and market flavored e-liquid products. The letters cite postings by influencers on social media sites such as Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter that endorse the target companies’ products, without any warnings that the products contain nicotine, an addictive chemical. The FDA determined that the featured e-liquids are misbranded because the social media posts do not include the nicotine warning, which has been required since August 2018. The FTC stated that the FTC Act’s prohibition on unfair or … Continue reading Vaping ads on social media must disclose nicotine risk
