Flavored tobacco products now banned in Livermore


LIVERMORE (KRON) — Livermore City Council on Monday night vote to ban the sales of all flavored tobacco products and e-cigarette devices citywide. 

The city is also introducing a 1,000-foot buffer zone between tobacco retailers and places like schools and libraries. 

The ordinance will also establish a Tobacco Retailers License and require all tobacco retailers in the city to obtain one and renew it every year. 

The ban’s goal is to reduce the number of tobacco-using minors by eliminating flavored products such as menthol cigarettes and e-cigarettes and markets that target youth.
