LIVERMORE (KRON) – The Livermore City Council voted to ban flavored tobacco and e-cigarette sales, but there’s an exemption for premium tobacco products.
The City Council says they did not want to push any premium tobacco businesses out of the city.
A number of Bay Area cities have already done so.
San Francisco recently banned the sales of e-cigarettes.
But Livermore will become the first city in the Tri-Valley to ban the sale of flavored tobacco.
The law takes effect in 30 days.
